WTF: These Levitating Cups Are Your New Party Trick

Putting on a good dinner party is kind of like performing a magic trick: You divert attention away from the chaos that’s happening in the kitchen, keep everyone entertained and maybe even have an assistant in a sparkling outfit (or an apron). Now there’s one new Kickstarter that will transform your run-of-the-mill party into a full-on extravaganza.

The LevitatingCUP is “the world’s first zero gravity drinkware” that will put on a show the next time you bring friends around. Using a system of magnets and electrical fields, the LevitatingCUP puts your drink on display. In the air.

The Kickstarter has already raised over $28,000 of its $50,000 goal. The base comes in either a wired or wireless version, so you can take your dancing drink on the go if you so choose. For $129, you can get just the base, but for $10 more, you’ll get a faux-glass cup too. Options include a coffee cup, beer glass, dessert glass and cocktail tumbler.

Say goodbye to coasters and upgrade to this magic. Although, to be ultra-sneaky, we recommend installing the bases below your dinner table and watching your guests’ faces as their cups float mid-air. Just remember: A good hostess never reveals her secrets!

What do you think about these crazy cups? Let us know @BritandCo!
