Telekinetic Pen Kit

From Make: Volume 13, comes this great DIY Magic trick. Using a small battery, a magnetic reed switch, and a miniature pager motor, this device will fit concealed inside a fine-point Sharpie pen. When the magnet is drawn near, the contacts on the reed switch close, making the Sharpie dance and vibrate on the table.
