Glassware That Defies Gravity

New device enables your cocktail to levitate

No, your eyes are not deceiving you, that cup is really floating in midair. The traditional coaster is getting a technology upgrade with the introduction of a new device that actually allows glassware to levitate above a surface.

The Chicago-based company, Levitating CUP, is defying all odds by creating a product that utilizes electromagnetic suspension, allowing your glasses to catch some air. All of the cups feature a metallic base that "enables the cup to float above the table at zero gravity, completely weightless, and remain that way uninterrupted indefinitely," according to the company. Want to spook your friends? Install the device under a table so your drink floats directly above the surface.

The company has launched a Kickstarter campaign where you can support the product and preorder your own floating glassware. Cheers!
