These Floating Bonsai Trees Look Like Actual Magic

It's hard to believe it's not an optical illusion.

Posted on

This is an Air Bonsai, a bonsai tree that spins and floats with the help of a magnetic base beneath it. It was created by a team of designers in Kyushu, Japan, and it recently reached its goal on Kickstarter.

An Air Bonsai doesn't come cheap — currently, you can only get one by pledging $200 or more on Kickstarter, and it won't ship until August.

Additionally, It's illegal to export bonsai trees from Japan, so non-Japanese purchasers will receive plants from their own country. The kit also includes directions on how to transport your own plant to the Air Bonsai.
