Watch a floating pillow somehow support the weight of a brick

How is this floating pillow supporting the weight of this brick? Magic? Some sort of invisible string? Maybe it's an illusion to make it look like the pillow is floating and spinning but it really isn't? CGI!? Nope.


It's magnets! Which I guess is the closest thing we have to magic here on Earth. BrussPup used Crealev's CLM 2 magnetic levitation module to create the floating effect and it's never not cool to see shit hovering that isn't supposed to hover. The magnet system can hold up to 20 pounds of weight and he uses it to make a chessboard fly, the pillow float, books mysteriously hover and even lifts a Millennium Falcon.
