Levitating bonsai trees are coming out of Japan – really.
A small company called Hoshinchu based in Kyushu invented Air Bonsai, which is a system that magnetically levitates small bonsai trees inches above a miniature electrified platform.
You don’t even have to use a bonsai tree; you can use it to plant your favorite shrub. It comes with a moss ball, the energy base, and should be watered from time to time.
People really appreciate the idea too — judging by the company’s Kickstarter page. In less than thirty days the company over exceeded their original budget goal for their “floating star.”
