Levitating Cup + Base

$250.00 $119.00
Vendor: Bel Air Vue

The elegant Levitating Cup is equal parts sculpture, machinery, and functional drinkware. Featuring a single drinking glass (don't worry, it's imitation glass that won't break if it falls) along with a sleek and simple wooden base, the integrated electromagnetic suspension system lets the glass hover just above the base all on its own— perfect for keeping your spirits lifted, so to speak.

Just plug it in, hold the cup above the base, and watch as it moves and locks into place. Once it's in position, release it, and watch as it floats weightlessly in mid-air. Now all you have to do is pour in your favorite drink while it's hovering - hands free - and marvel in the magic.

4. Make the cup approach the center of the base slowly and move it towards left and right or front and back to try to get the levitation point.
