What could be better than a drink in your hand? How about a drink that can levitate?
It’s not magic — it’s electromagnetic suspension. A wireless block and special cups with magnetic bases create the magical illusion of a drink that hovers like a hummingbird.
Dubbed “Levitating CUP,” the gravity-defying effect is purely aesthetic — and that’s exactly the point, according to creator Joel Paglione. He told Live Science that while many restaurants explore novel ways of displaying food more attractively to enhance the dining experience, far less attention is paid to the way drinks are delivered — and he decided to change that.
“I wanted something that could wow everyone,” Paglione said. “So much focus is on plating, on unique presentation in terms of food. I wanted to create something that would complement what restaurants are doing, and create a spectacle with the drink itself.”
Isn’t that just amazing? Drinking would never be the same again.
