Hover Craft

Wow. You know how the lava lamp was a category breaker when it came to home/cubicle lighting… well perhaps you didn’t… but now you do. This stands to have the same effect on home/cubicle decorating. Levitating stuff. Your stuff. Hovering.

As long as your object weighs less than four ounces (100 grams) it’ll float on this platform – complete with spotlight.

Now that’s awesome. And it’s hard to believe it could get better. But it does. How about this floating record player… (it’s conceptual, the other one will be retailing by the end of the year).

The 100+ word description:

The record player uses a carrier and dock outfitted with a magnetic and auto-calibrating control system which carries the LP into thin air as it is playing music. a self-running record player shaped in the form of a red sphere, contains a needle, amplifier and speaker, spins around the record, bringing the music to life. the sphere that plays the vinyl was technically influenced by the ‘vinyl killer’, currently the world’s smallest LP player that has a built-in motor, amplifier and speaker.

Simple colors and shapes express a kind of astronomical movement between the object and space.

The levitation is managed electronically. once turning the player on, you can manage the elevation levels through the touch sensors on the front side of the base unit.”

The one word description: Awesome.
