It's actually surprisingly strong. I grabbed this card game and stuck it on top. Not only did it support it, it stayed levitating even askew, notice the whole thing is tilted. This box of cards weighs about 10 ounces. I think it would be fine with some smaller size batteries.Noob Question:
How much 'weight' can that thing 'hold'?
I would assume alkaline batteries is too much.. but Arduino and li-po perhaps?
Got the wheels turning now......what about this........nice!
could maybe add some audio FX and some blinkies too then.. make it randomly up the leds like in the training session/movies.
Sounds like a plan!not sure about the costs for that? but a BT speaker make its more usable than just a static prop..
however.. for a more 'movie' accurate approach..
I could whip something up using an Arduino Pro-Mini and an DFPlayer (seems the combo of choice as of late!) LOL.. could trigger the leds and audio sounds in whatever pattern we want..
For some reason this one is a bit harder to levitate. Yesterday it was being a pain all day, I took a break, and today it levitated perfectly on the first try. The one I bought for my son is a different company, and I have zero issues with that one. But this one likes to test me......Looking great!...still can’t get mine to float lol
I’m thinking I might pick up another to see if that is my issue as well.For some reason this one is a bit harder to levitate.

I think the magnet in the base shifts sometimes, and after letting it rest and messing with it, it centers again? Who knows......It's definitely the base with this model though, this globe has no problem working on my son's base and that's a different manufacturer.
