Pretty cool....when you consider copper is of course non how the hell....?

#2 It happens because of eddy currents. Kinda like a metal detector. A metal detector produces eddy current in metal and distorts the magnetic field of the detector coil. When that happens the detector measures the strength of the distortion and it is able to tell the difference between the different metals.

This is effect of Lenz`s law. Currents bound inside the atoms of strong magnets can create counter-rotating currents in a copper or aluminum pipe.
