Magnet to stop wires from twisting?

Hello, I am currently designing a robot that will have, well, a lot of circular motion when completed. Could I solder wires to thin and bendable magnets to transfer power, that can ride along an outer edge as the robot spins? If so, what type of magnets will I need?

A little dab of conductive graphite grease can help with keeping the contacts reliable inside the headphone jack. Just don't use too much or it will bridge between the contacts!

Thanks everyone! Sounds like ill go for the headphone jack!
