So, We've Come To This: A Kickstarter For Magnetically Levitating Cocktail Glasses

July 26, 2016

This is the Kickstarter for Levitating CUP: Gravity Defying Drinkware. The system consists of an electromagnetic base (available either wired or wireless) that can keep a glass with a magnet in the bottom "quantum locked" and levitating. The cost of a single style glass of your choice and a base is around $180, with the wired version being slightly cheaper. I feel like having a whole bunch of these would be perfect for a bar that never wants me to come drink there. If I see a waiter approaching with a levitating glass I'm out of there because sorcery doesn't belong in bars and there's no telling what they're putting in your drink if witches and wizards are brewing them. Excuse me, bartender -- why is this drink bubbling like a cauldron? Are those lizard dicks I see at the bottom? Is this a potion of extreme generosity so I'll tip more? Just be honest and there's no need for my enchanted blade to get involved.

Keep going for a bunch more shots and their Kickstarter video.

Thanks to Gregory, who told me he just bought four with the hope of combining them so he can levitate a 64oz pimp chalice because that shit's heavy.

    what bothers me is nobody questions putting a magnet next to a pc...

  • GeneralDisorder

    Why you no SSD? GTFO n00b!

    Seriously, now that CRTs aren't common magnets aren't too catastrophic to electronics. Even spindle drives are magnetically shielded so without like... fuck-ton-o-gauss you won't see an effect.

    Oh piss off you limey wanker! Or Kiwi wanker. Or... venomous wanker.

  • Munihausen

    Oy, guv'na - put another shrimp on the barbie!

  • GeneralDisorder

    Right. Venomous. Carry on with your pissing off then. Or something.

  • Munihausen

    That is some sense of humor you have, gee whiz.

  • GeneralDisorder

    I have my moments. Usually bad.

  • G-man

    What the fuck do you need a kickstarter to make such a simple gadget.

  • Ramuran

    That guy opened his chips from the bottom and it bothers me.
