Levitating Frogs

A while ago, there was a picture of a frog, floating by magnetism, making its way around the internet.  I re-stumbled on it, along with a youtube video of it (it tries to swim its way out).

For no other reason that its sheer awesomeness, we have the youtube video itself, a non-technical explanation of how this works, and then the scientific paper in PDF format.

Less technical explanation
