Janick Simeray is a French engineer and inventor who's developing an incredible electromagnetic levitation technology. And it looks like he ain't messin' around with commercialization either.
According to a French magazine article on his website, we're looking at 80 for a basic globe floating thingie. That price point ought to get it in Sharper Image stores in a hurry.
Now, I don't know if it would be safe or even possible, but this could be a killer self-levy if scaled up for the stage. It's too bad that buzz is building so early though, as it sort of throws a wrench into Clarke's "sufficiently advanced" maxim.
No word yet on when it'll become available to the masses, but I guess we all knew this day would arrive. Did it have to come so soon?
