A coaster that uses magnets to levitate drinks an inch above the table.
How it “works:”
One magnet is attached to a set of four, evenly-spaced metal L-shaped thingies. Another magnet hovers above for users to place their drink on.
The coaster has protected fine tables for decades. And while we’ve seen plenty of options emerge in design and even shape there has been no progress in the coaster’s key functionality.
Meet the Floating Coaster – A table protector for the post-modern drinker! This snazzy product elevates coffee and/or cocktail hour by elevating your drink.
Why this was a bad idea:
Your drink will spill. Not sometimes, but literally every time you use it.
