Magnetized Float Table by RPR

There’s more than meets the eye with the innovative Float Table. Designed by the team at Rock Paper Robot, this Rubik’s cube like table utilizes a series of magnets to make each individual cube levitate.

Our first question when we found out that magnets are what create the levitating effect was how do the cubes not float away from each other? RPR has implemented a system of tensile steel cables to ensure the repelling cubes are kept in equilibrium. Simply apply force to any part of the table, and you will see the table elastically deform only to once again stabilize thanks to the repelling forces of the magnets. Each wooden table is hand built, and can cost upwards of $10,000 for a table made with 27 cubes. Obviously the price increases with the number of cubes used in the construction process.
