In 2003 the Japanese utilized magnetic levitation for their 361 mph train, and in 2008 a British company utilized it to levitate a chair eight inches off the ground. The Hoverit uses a series of powerful magnets that repel each-other (like in grade school science class) to create a “magic carpet” like experience. This clear acrylic marvel is also the world’s most comfortable credit card eraser. Each chair is handmade and can be customized to support the weight of most people. At a price of £5,875 it costs a little more than an IKEA lounger, but the Hoverit is a lot more interesting.
