In the future, everything will levitate. Take for example Angela Jansen's floaty lamp, shown by the Netherlander firm Crealev at a show during Dutch Design Week. (Oh, you don't attend?) It's actually the shade that hovers using magnetic levitation over the light-up lamp base, but it's enough to make you truly believe in magic. Or at least in all those other maglev products on the market, like the photo frame, computer mouse and $90,000 limited-edition sculpture. (And let's not leave out the SkyMall star, the floating globe). After the jump, there's a short video clip of the spinning Crealev lamp—and its kid sister, the levitating candy dish—shot by Moco Loco.

Something that's particularly worrying are machine learning algorithms that are quickly making it possible to generate fake videos of public figures saying things they didn't with uncanny audiovisual accuracy.
