I don't think he's "faking it" at all. It's just not to the extent that some people are imagining. Most laypeople would most likely see it as
"well that's nothing", but those who actually experiment and have worked with electromagnetism and know how difficult it is to do the most simple
of things without years of study and experience will see it as a nice little accomplishment.
Not earth shattering by any means, yet an excellent accomplishment for someone young and experimenting in the field.
I do kind of doubt you'll be able to get a patent as it has been done before, but that doesn't mean you haven't made a personal accomplishment. You
saw that something was possible and you worked with what you had until you were able to accomplish it. This could be the event that starts a long and
productive career in the field and you should be very proud of it.
For those who are imagining floating cars or people levitating, it's not to that extent, he's talking about a small object levitating which is very
possible, but not very simple to accomplish without a great deal of experimentation or understanding. He's put a great deal of work and effort into
it and is unlocking an understanding that can be directed toward larger projects in the future. Let him enjoy the success of his undertaking and see
where it leads him. In 10 or 15 years, he may be the guy that figures out how to make levitation on a larger scale work without extreme power usuage
