Spinning a magnet inside a coil of wire

If you spin a magnet along the inside of a coil of wire and not perpendicular then:

Nothing will happen

Nothing happens if the magnet is inline with the coil of wire.

To enable the induction of any current to flow in the coil the magnet must pass perpendicularly with the coil:

The induction of current only occurs when the magnet is spun perpendicular to the wire.

Another similar way to generate electricity using magnetic induction:

Another method to induce electricity.
