These levitating cups 'float' in mid-air using magnets

The Levitating Cup consists of two parts – a glass and a metallic base. The glass hovers above the base via a process called “electromagnetic suspension.”

It means the glass doesn’t touch the surface of the table.

There are four different types of glasses available to buy, as well as a wired or wireless metallic base sold separately.
