Flying without THC

The Hoverit floating chair

It may not be the flying car we’ve been waiting for since the mid 1950s, but the UK based company Hoverit has come up with what may prove to be the next best thing: a “Honey, I can fly” maglev lounge chair.

“The Hoverit Lounger is British designed and built. It is precision engineered from clear acrylic and hovers through the use of powerful magnets, floating up and down on two guide bars to give the feeling of lying in mid-air.”

Hoverit will officially levitate the chair at the Ideal Home’s Centenary Show in March, and reckons it’s expecting “significant interest” in the product.

Prices for the Hoverit are currently on application, but we can reveal that the floating on air experience will set you back about 9.000 EUR (nope, not a typo) – a lot more than an Ikea chair

Oh, for those who never heard of THC: Check out Wiki on Tetrahydrocannabinol :o)
