What use is a Levitron if you can't even set up the top to spin? A Levitron Self Starter sets it up for you, no questions asked. Simply place the top on the tip of this levitron starter, place it vertically over the magnetic base, and wait for the spin. Then release. Ta-da! See? Even science is fumbling-fingers-proof! Grab one AA battery for your Levitron Self Starter and get ready for some floating action!
