relay = bad

Think about the electro magnet holding a little peice of metal with the whole thing spinning so fast, that the little metal peice ends up weighing 1000x more than the electromagnet was designed to hold


this thing would have to be all solid state really and built in something that balances things correctly.

And i like solar, but its so inefficient and chances are really good that the sun wouldnt hit the wheels that often.

When you said something useful I was thinking more along the lines of a CUSTOM lazy susan (those things you put on your table).
