I considered the most efficient way to progress and decided to branch into a different design. In this design, the magnets surround the feedback hardware instead of being the hub. This has the potential to use more magnetic material, which would aid miniaturization later.

The new design will start with a spinner containing many bar magnets held in the same orientation by rectangular holes in the perimeter. I started a program to create a ring of arbitrary diameter and enter the number of magnets I wanted to install. The program evenly distributes the magnets around the perimeter, effectively constructing a diametrically magnetized ring.
