Magnet Man

Liew Thow Lin is known as the “Magnet Man” because he has the ability to stick metal objects to his body.

Liew has performed in many charity events showing his ability.[citation needed] He can make metal objects, weighing up to 2 kg each, up to 36 kg total, stick to his skin. He has also pulled a car using this ability.

Liew’s ability is not due to any source of magnetism. Scientists from Malaysia’s University of Technology found no magnetic field in Lin’s body, but did determine that his skin exhibits very high levels of friction, providing a “suction effect”. The trait appears to be genetic, appearing in Lin’s three grandchildren.
