    Background: AMERICAN RESEARCH ENGINEERS HAVE GRAPHICALLY DEMONSTRATED A NEW PERMANENT MAGNET SYSTEM - BY MAKING A PAIR OF MAGNETIC SHOES FOR A MAN WHO MIGHT NEED AN UPSIDE DOWN VIEW ON LIFE.

    THE MAGNETS CLAMP HIS FEET TIGHTLY TO A STEEL BEAM.BUT, UNLIKE OTHER PERMANENT MAGNETS, THESE CAN BE SWITCHED "ON" AND "OFF" AT THE PUSH OF A BUTTON.

    IN THIS WAY, THE MAN CAN FREE HIS FOOT, TAKE A STEP, AND THEN SWITCH THE MAGNET ON AGAIN.THE MAGNETS DO NOT NEED ELECTRIC POWER TO CREATE THEIR STRONG MAGNETIC PULL.

    OFFICIALS OF WESTINGHOUSE ELECTRIC CORPORATION - WHOSE ENGINEERS DEVELOPED THE MAGNET - FORSEE MANY USES FOR THE NEW IDEA.FOR INSTANCE, FUTURE ASTRONAUTS MIGHT EVEN USE THEM TO MOVE AROUND AT EASE IN THE WEIGHTLESSNESS OF SPACE.
