Both halves of the Air Bonsai, have magnets installed within the design, that allow the top half to float and spin without being tethered to the base.

The project is currently funding on Kickstarter to make possible bringing to the market for its acquisition. It appears that the basic Air Bonsai set starts at $200 and they’re targeting a delivery date of August 2016. … (Read more)
