Futuristic Levitating Drinkware

This Flying Cup Defies Gravity

— July 22, 2016 — Lifestyle
If anyone ever wanted to drink out of a flying cup, they finally have the chance to do so. 'LevitatingCUP' by Joel Paglione is drinkware that defies gravity and hovers in the air.

His team has taken his original floating cup one step further than before and created a whole set of items to choose from including dessert cups, plates and a pillow for presentation. The brand has also developed a system for its drinkware that no longer requires a wire, making the items portable and aesthetically pleasing.

The floating items would be an interesting addition to at-home parties, bars and restaurants. The futuristic drinkware brings the 'Jetsons' cartoon to real life. Interested consumers can purchase a single flying cup or customize full sets of drinkware on the company's Kickstarter site.
