What would be your wish if you found the legendary magic lamp? Here is the closest replica of that mythological product, The Levitron Levitating Table Lamp is an amazing unique lamp whose shade hovers above its base completely unattached.
If you think this is a mere illusion then take a whiff of the physics behind it. It bears a magnetic disk a couple of inches above its base that serves the double purpose of stabilizing the lamp’s base and creating a force to hold the shade mid-air.
It works hand in hand with 4 electromagnetic coils also built into the base to maintain the floating effect or levitation even in case of an impact.
For its lighting purposes, the lamp contains 6 LEDs, half of them facing up towards the shade and the other half facing downwards to the delicately brushed metallic stand. The two sets of LEDs have a small switch secretly tucked into the base of the stand.
