Liew Thow Lin – The Magnet Man

Liew Thow Lin of Malaysia is known as the “Magnet Man” (Mr. Magnet) because of his ability to stick metal objects to his body.Lin has performed in many charity events showing his ability. He can make metal objects, weighing up to 2kg each, up to 36 kg total, stick to his skin. He has also pulled a car using this ability.

Lin’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.

Lin was featured on the second episode of the Discovery Channel’s One Step Beyond.
