Simple example of a tensegrity structure. Using alternating magnetic polarity keeps the 8 spheres in between the spheres directly connected to the rods, and the connection is strong enough to take some strain.

Building Instructions[edit | edit source]

  1. Start out with the rods vertical and parallel to one another. Make sure the polarity of the rods alternates, so neighbouring rods attract each other.
  2. Insert the remaining spheres.
  3. Gently allow the spheres to take the strain, rotating the rods into the final position.
