Magnetic coating is never clearly explained, but the impression I get is a sort
of magnetic monopole paint or a layer of permanent magnets affixed to the
joints, such that north poles always oppose north poles and south poles always
oppose south poles. The net result is that of a magnetic levitation (maglev)
track along the joint that keeps the two edges from actually coming into
physical contact.
