Hoverit's magnetic lounger lets you levitate
Ever wanted to feel like you were floating on air, in more than the metaphorical sense? Well, a revolutionary new lounger lets you get as close as science currently allows to doing just that - and it's all thanks to magnets (understandably, they are a little bit larger than these babies).
Made by British Company Hoverit, this lounger appears to be defying gravity thanks to the clever use of repelling magnetic forces. The makers say it feels like floating on a cloud - and who wouldn't like to try that?
The company's website points out that magnets have been found to help people with all kinds of health problems, so you could even justify the expense (each lounger is custom-made) by saying it will have therapeutic benefits.
But beware: electronics and magnets do not mix well. So you'll need to find some way to levitate your laptop in midair or perhaps only use the lounger when - gasp! - you're not surfing the net/using your iPod/texting your friends.
I've never owned a sun-lounger because I'm British and would never be able to justify the cost-per-use ratio. I think I could justify the Hoverit however, on a happiness-per-use ratio. And because it can be used inside or out.
