49 Floating Innovations

From Floating Gadgets to Gravity Defying Furniture

— June 12, 2009 — Tech
It seems you can make anything float nowadays. Furniture, homes, art and billboards are all able to defy the laws of gravity and stay afloat in air or on water.

Check out the slide show below for a variety of floating innovations from water vehicles to floating home decor and unusual art projects.

Implications - The aspect of hovering above ground is attractive to consumers because it suggests escape. Though some say that, since humans use only 10 percent of their brains, levitation is humanly possible, it is not common to say the least. Thus, consumers will have to enjoy levitation in alternative ways such as through water-floating vehicles or hovering furniture.
