CIC 21-633 Magnetic Levitation Express
CIC 21-633 Magnetic Levitation Express is an amazing DIY construction set for assembling railway track with a train that moves at high speed without wheels thanks to magnetic levitation. In-built magnetic strips create electromagnetic field, which is the driving force for the train. The package includes railway track and a train with three carriages.
The construction set is the best way for children to learn a floating train structural arrangement and the principles of its operation, and to acquire new exciting knowledge of science and technology.
Wikipedia describes the first commercially operated high-speed magnetic levitation line in the world, which is in Shanghai. The top operational commercial speed of this train is 431 km/h, making it the world’s fastest train in the world.
How It Works
The train and railway track have built-in magnetic strips in specifically chosen places. After assembly is completed, their magnetic polarity coincides. As a result, a magnetic field is created, which enables the train to float and run smoothly at high speed. This magnetic field is the driving force of the train.
