Levitating Wireless Candelabra Makes For An Amazing Centrepiece

It’s all explainable via science. If you replace your typical cornucopia centrepiece with this floating steel plate supporting a glowing wireless candelabra, your dinner guests will be too blown away to notice your dry turkey and lumpy gravy.

This awesome demonstration of magnetic levitation and inductive power was recorded at Paris’ Palais de la Decouverte, a science centre that obviously goes above and beyond just demos of static electricity. Watching the whole thing float is one of those moments when science feels like magic. [YouTube via The Verge via io9]
