one plastic rod, weighted end always down, upper part of rod is where you screw tighten the mount to *regular size cameras and the camera will remain right side up no matter what position the base is in; up to 180 degree pivot is versatile enough for most applications, if not get the 'Super Gyro' support stand. Magnetic bases levitate the camera up, with additional telescoping adjusters to get the right heights "powered by neodymium".

       I don't get what this has to do with magnets. Help?

       As it happens, I've been working on a product which uses neodymium magnets and standard 1/4"-20 digital camera mount threads, along with telescopic stands, albeit for a substantially different goal.   

       I think [abadon] is seeking to use pairs of Nd magnets in opposition to "float" the camera above a gyroscopically stabilized mount (to isolate from vibration.) That would seem to require 2-dimensional horizontal stabilization, as well. A sketch or further elucidation would be most wecome!   

       Kind of like a "steadicam." [links]
