A normal spinning top is modified by attaching a small SuperMagnet
to its axis.
A larger permanent magnet
is held in hand and moved over the top (without touching it).
The direction that the top moves in can be altered by the larger magnet.
In the film: a manipulated top in the form of a hexagon collides with a rubber ball.
The manipulated top collides with a glass marble.
Two manipulated tops collide into each other.
They will often then collide several times due to the Bernoulli Effect.
