A Chicago-based company is hoping to bring an end to traditional coasters with a new device that actually allows glasses to levitate above a surface.
The aptly-named “Levitating Cup” utilizes a base with an electromagnet. In the image above, the base has been installed under the table so that you can float your drink directly on the surface. Check out the demo video below for more info.
If you would like the Levitating Cup to become a reality, head on over to Kickstarter and back the project. Wired and wireless versions are available with several different cup styles.
