TEMPTING: DIY Magnetic Levitating Bed Built For $1,000

May 24, 2012


This is a levitating bed built by Redditor mememetatata using plywood and hockey puck sized rare earth magnets. It can levitate a person up to 250 pounds (so probably no hover-boning) and looks really comfortable. I'm kidding -- two inches of foam on a wood base? Knock knock. Who's there? SEVERE BACK PAIN. That said, I kinda want to build one for myself. "You're gonna try to trap Magneto and steal his powers, aren't you?" Maybe.

Hit the jump for several more shots, including one of the magnets.





Thanks to thompson and Lee, who both stand on their hoverbeds pretending their hoverboards and saying things like, "McFly, you bojo -- those boards don't work on water!" F*** guys, that sounds like a great time. Sleepover soon?
