I&#39;m trying to levitate some small objects.<br>
I know you can&#39;t have stable equilibrium with permanent magnets, but<br>
is there a way to do it with microcontroller controlled<br>
electromagnets?<br>
This is an area I have no experience in - just had some ideas for a<br>
project and wanted to see what was possible. Any experiences / reading<br>
material would be highly appreciated.<br>
