There was an article in Scientific American many years ago.  They used a 
magnet mounted on the end of a stick attached to the pendulum arm.  The arc 
of the magnet swung through a hole in the middle of a solenoid coil.  A pulse 
on the coil at the right time provided the nudge with no physical contact.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
