New Magnetic Technology Defies Earnshaw’s Theorem? V3R3

Does this New Magnetic Technology defy Earnshaw’s Theorem?

Not yet but it may help lead to needing to reinterpret the theorem in the near future. Magnetic Levitator V3R3.
Our goal is to combine this magnetic technology with that of the classic magnetic levitator (see videos V1R1 & V1R2) for a free floating axle with no point of contact.
That would make a frictionless no point of contact free axle which we intend to use for a Mendocino Motor, Magnet Motor, etc.
I had to purchase a lot of super strong rare earth neodymium magnets for this and I am looking for sponsors to provide neodymium magnets for future builds.

As Earnshaw’s Theorem states, its impossible to levitate a magnet over another. However its almost certainly possible to levitate a magnet or an array of magnets over another magnet or array or configuration.

    curious about this for high speed applications with passive magnetics for zero friction, ive seen superconductor pinning and im wondering if this is a cheap version.

    This is really neat, but how does it work? I couldn’t find any build videos on how your magnets are arranged.

    Hey you are not telling us how it works or a link to the toy the spiked the idea???
