Levitron: Float any Object (video)
Collect small trinkets? Are they piling up on your desk and you just don’t know which one to feature this week? Boy, do we have the answer. The Levitron Revolution. This device, which is no larger than a cup warmer, uses “EZ Float Technology” to suspend your precious objects, that weigh no more than 12oz, in mid air. Yes, mid air!
Feel free to place a mini skateboard on there, but don’t think for a second that you’ll be able to ride it Marty McFly style. The objects need to remain in its magnetic field to keep afloat. Fortunately, adding new objects is ultra simple as is setting it up. Four LED lights at the corners of the device will illuminate once you have centered the included disc, which supports whatever objects you place on it. After that you can remove and add new objects. An internal processor makes up to 1,000 calculations a second to adjust for variations in weight, or say if you spin the object, enabling it to seamlessly stay afloat until you disconnect the power source. You can even float water mid air and call yourself the next Messiah or turn it on its side.
Vat19 sells this awesome contraption for $99.99. However, they’re currently sold out until 11/28.
