They could just be attracted to the Fe in nearby objects. Screws in the furniture etc. I have 3 spherical neos of varying diameters they roll very easily on a bench if iron is nearby. Not sure if its Al or Fe in the clip but either would be having an affect at that distance I would have thought. They way the magnet wants to roll towards something when first on the bench indicates it is being attracted to something. Surely they would have checked that but can't see in in the paper. I can see a particle board bench which typically would have screws in it. They may be right but the vids are not convincing.

This seems like a very simple thing to rule out. Especially when the magnets are rising in a glass tube. What metal object would be attracting them, the ceiling?

I hope they're right because it would be interesting to explore. The stand that hold the tube looks like it could be some metal involved. If it was just plastic and ceramic then great.

Jimboot,  I already had two spherical magnets so I posted my own test of this in a video at overunityresearch.com (Thread - Energy from electron spin) using two plastic vitamin bottles with the tops cut off.   They definitely climb up when rotated.  No other metal was nearby.  Quite fascinating.

I just took the 2 bottles outside to try this.  Now this is strange.   It took much longer for them to move up and they kept going up and down in little increments but eventually came higher.   So I wondered how this could be by just going outside.   Ceiling?  But that is not it as I went back inside and tried inside with the same result that it took much longer for them to go up and they acted exactly the same as outside - going up and down in little increments but eventually reaching the top.   Gravity stronger today?  LOL  I have no explanation for the difference I see in the test today versus the test I did a couple days ago when I made the video.   Inside test today was done in the same spot and it now takes much longer to get them to the top.  Same temperature inside.

Try to wash the spheres and containers with soap and dry them good and try again. They might have gotten contaminated by the oils of your hands and affected their friction.

I left them sitting on the counter separated by about 18" and they had not been touched since the first test so I don't think it is dirt or oils causing this change.   I will continue to try at different times today and the next couple days to see if there is any differences.  I'll try washing eventually but at this point I'm fairly certain that is not the cause of this change.   I'm considering the rather wild idea that the full moon on August 11th which is now waning might have had something to do with this.  We know it affects the tidal ocean waves causing them to be higher when the moon is full so maybe it is possible this effect will lessen as the moon wanes.   I'll be doing daily tests...

My pendulum demonstrated the spin effect over 15 years ago here
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4FzK2XKQ-74

Dropped at 2pm goes down and up to 12 then drops back down slowly.

Why? Clockwise spin pushed it up 2+ hrs and counterclockwise it brakes the fall - thus slowly.
