LEVITATING X: Levitate Everything

$41,697

Introducing the LEVITATING X Collection – the next generation of gravity defying tech art for your home featuring cutting edge levitation technology.

As children we all dreamed of that future day when cars would fly, our robot butler would do the chores, and we would travel to the stars.

With the LevitatingX Collection, that day is one step closer to reality.

Take a step into the future with our modern line of plates, pillows, vases, and zero gravity works of art. 

They’ll mesmerize the senses as they suspend your jewelry, party appetizers, plants, and more in space.

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

The Levitating X Collection offers a variety of decorative and functional, gravity defying pieces that allow you to give your home a modern and distinctly futuristic appeal. Whether you choose to grow, display, eat, or express, we offer a levitating design for every function.

Levitating Plant:  Deliver 360 degrees of nourishing sunlight so your houseplants grow straighter and stronger.

Levitating Pillow:  Take in your favorite timepieces and jewelry from every angle with this weightless exhibit.

Levitating Plate:  Elevate your dinner parties with the first platter to carry itself. It floats and rotates in mid-air, showing off your culinary skills from every angle.

Levitating Décor: Contemporary, modern, luxurious. These zero gravity works of art are straight out of a sci-fi movie, rotating in 3D space.

 

                                                        

Whether it’s our jewelry pillow made from the finest white leather or our sculptures that are each individually 3D printed from the highest quality glossy resin, we take pride in selecting only the best materials.

 

 

  

Getting started is simple—no rocket scientist required.

The Levitating X Collection consists of two parts: the product of your choice and a base. The base is what houses the technology that enables our designs to levitate.

Thanks to the power of electromagnetic suspension technology, it’s able to levitate your desired object effortlessly. Simply power it on, align your object, and sit back in awe as it weightlessly rotates in space.

Each base comes with a proprietary Levitation Assist Plate, which will allow you--or any of your friends--to levitate our products effortlessly the first time you try it.

More Uses:  

Let your imagination guide your décor.

Want to take advantage of its gentle rotation to freshen up your home? Just fill your decor with potpourri, or set some freshly baked desserts on your levitating plate and set it spinning. The aroma will fill the room.  

Want to create a romantic candle lit evening? Try adding an e-candle to a vase and watch the light flicker through the structure.

 

 

 

When designing the housing that surrounds our electromagnetic suspension tech, we had four design criterion: it must be lightweight, it must be sleek and minimal, it must be water resistant, and it must be cost effective and producible.

We went through many design iterations before deciding on the simple and versatile base design we have today.

One of the main reasons we went with square versus round is that the square base can be set side-by-side easily with multiple bases, allowing for the future creation of large surface levitating products.

Packaging Design:

We thought long and hard about our packaging to ensure you have the maximum flexibility in mixing and matching your products while keeping costs low. We’ve created common box sizes wherever possible, while ensuring each box is sturdy and durable enough to protect even our most fragile 3D printed pieces.

 

We have created the following visualizer so you can see all of our pledge levels and the multiple design options you can choose from (options will be recorded via our email survey after the pre-order ends).

 

    

 

   

 

    

 

    

 

 

'A La Carte' Pledges:

We have also created an 'a la carte' section below so you can easily add additional items to your pledge. They can be added to any backing level.

*Note, if you already have a Levitating Cup base and you would just like to back us for some of our new designs, simply just add the items you want from the list below to our "SPECIAL ORDERS" pledge level and we will get your selections at the time of our survey.

 

 

Our vision begins with you.

At the center of our brand ethos is the desire to bring you the best collection of levitating products available today. With designs that inspire and products that innovate, our collection reflects our goal of bringing a Levitating X experience to anyone and everyone.

We're excited to say that our product development team is just getting warmed up. We envision hundreds upon hundreds of new levitating designs and solutions that will all work with the same base that’s available today.

With endless opportunities in form, material, and scale at our fingertips, we plan to continue to release new base and product designs in a variety of shapes and colors.

Imagine an online shopping experience with multiple categories of Levitating X products to choose from and new designs emerging every month.
Imagine an online shopping experience with multiple categories of Levitating X products to choose from and new designs emerging every month.

We’re even envisioning a time when you can walk through an entire levitating section at a boutique shop near you, showcasing a multitude of decor pieces for you to select from.

This is our vision, and it starts with your help and support.

 

What can we say? Our team at the Levitating Design Labs is incredible.

Saying we’re proud of them would be an understatement.

Over the years we have accumulated the best designers and engineers from across the globe.

Here are just a few of our key team members who have worked tirelessly to make this project possible—one of which even worked late into the night only a few days before his wedding (Thanks again Dave for your commitment in our pursuit of levitating everything, and please thank your beautiful and forgiving wife.).

We are very lucky to have such dedicated and passionate team members who share the same vision for our company. Thank you to anyone we missed who took part in our efforts over the past few years.

There can't be anything worse than placing a pre-order for something that takes over 6 months to deliver. The wait can be agonizing!

We know how important a short delivery time frame is for our supporters, so we have worked very hard to arrange a short 60 day delivery. That means we will be putting our money where our mouth is prior to the end of the kickstarter campaign in order to purchase the molds, tools, and raw materials we need to get these products into your hands sooner.

We respect and appreciate your belief in our product, and us and we hope it shows.

We are fully integrated with 3PL Shipwire who will be handling all of our shipping to ensure a smooth delivery around the world. We will be utilizing warehouses in both the USA and in Hong Kong to ensure the lowest shipping costs for our reward deliveries in both the east and west hemispheres.

We have spent years designing, engineering, and developing our electromagnetic suspension technology to make it smaller, lighter, portable, and easy to use. Our last goal is to make it as cost effective as possible, which is where you come in.

With the help of crowdfunding, we will be able to source the funding we need to afford the equipment that will allow us to mass-produce our designs. This will in turn reduce the price and make it affordable and practical for anyone to buy.

We are not a boutique producer of individual levitating products. If we are funded, we will produce the Levitating X Collection in large quantities while continually adding new and innovative levitating designs each month. We assure you that all of our future products will work with each other to allow you to mix and match. Your initial investment in a Levitating X base will continue to amaze you throughout the years to come as we develop new designs that work with it.

Our Promise:  

Yes, most kickstarters build cool stuff with your investments, but they usually end there. Very few pursue mass production and distribution of their funded projects. 

When you invest in our campaign, you are not just funding our art. You are participating in the development of something bigger than this campaign alone.

Our mission is to build a mass market levitating design company, and you will have helped us get the necessary initial momentum we need to expand into retail and mass markets.

This will not be a one and done project or product. If we are successful with this campaign and ignite the initial traction we need, we will stop at nothing to ensure you see our levitating products on store shelves everywhere.

That's our promise.

In return, you will get to revel in great prices on our first production pieces and be able to brag that you helped usher in the next generation of home decor.

So please, take a step into the future, click the below and help us levitate everything.

 

 

Risks and challenges

After completing a successful Kickstarter campaign for our Levitating Cup, we feel we have worked out all the bugs with our design. Our founder has also launched many previous campaigns on Kickstarter including the launch of the "Oak Bottle," which delivered on time and has gone on to become a world renowned brand.

We are confident in our ability to deliver on time and exceed our backers' expectations.

That said, every project presents unique challenges. Obstacles may arise outside of our control, but we pride ourselves on quick and forthcoming communication. If for some reason the worst does occur, we will make sure our backers are made aware on day one.

One additional risk is if you plan to use our levitating pillow with a watch, you should do so at your own risk. Magnets could effect mechanical, quartz or other watch movements if exposed to extremely strong magnets over a long period of time. Although, we have experienced absolutely no effects resulting from use with our jewelry pillow on multiple watches of all kinds, we feel we should let our backers know about it so they can check with their watch manufacturer first before using our pillow with it as we are not responsible for any negative effects resulting from use of jewelry with our levitating pillow.

So that's it, that's our risks and challenges section in a nutshell. We have worked very hard to get to this point and we take our responsibilities very seriously. We will not disappoint--just like we have not disappointed in the past.
