The magnetic fields of a cracked pot. Note - the blue ring in the center is from having two different magnets; the bottom volume is like a large ring magnet and the top is like a cylinder magnet. The interaction between the two, top and bottom, produces the blue ring eddy of flux. Also a capacitor with horizontal plates has the same field values as a vertical aligned magnet. In other words, you could design a capacitor that has the same field as the object in the video, but it would be...
