|The Mind Orbit contains a 0.28 cubic inch Neodymium
magnet that rhythmically alters the direction and strength of the Earth's natural
As shown in the video clip at
left, the magnetic field rotates at close range, causing the compass to turn in circles.
At arm's length distance, the compass points north, and movement is reduced to a small
For best results, the device should be held at an
intermediate position about 1 to 2 feet from the head.
This finite element animation
shows how the Mind Orbit interacts with the Earth's magnetic field.
