Levitating Moon Lamps - Intersection of Art & Technology

Levitation comes from the latin word levitas meaning “lightness”.

Wikipedia defines levitation as the process by which an object is held aloft, without mechanical support. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Levitation)

Levitation or transvection in the paranormal context is the rising of a human body and other objects into the air by mystical means or meditation. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Levitation_(paranormal))

For this blog, we’ll keep with the science, because there’s no need for meditation or mysticism to keep this lamp levitating. 

There are several different kinds of levitation like Aerodynamic, Electrostatic and Optical, just to name a few.

Levitating moon lamps are using Magnetic levitation, or Maglev, to float in the air.

Magnetic levitation is the most commonly seen and used form of levitation. Magnetic suspension is a method by which an object is suspended with no support other than magnetic fields.

When you turn on your Levitating Moon Lamp, it produces magnetic fields, using electricity to counteract the force of gravity. Magnetic suspension is lifting and holding the moon lamp in the air. In this way, the moon globe is held aloft without anything but the magnetic fields. 

Levitating Moon Lamp hovers an inch away by magnetic levitation and is powered through the air.

Thanks to the  latest Maglev technology, the moon can not only levitate, but it can also rotate in the air if you spin it. The lack of friction means that one spin can last for hours. If you prefer the lamp to be still, simply put your hands on the moon globe for a moment to stop the rotation.

As long as the Moon Lamp is connected to power and suspended with the magnetic connection, the lamp will be lit. 

Although the science behind the levitating lamp is simple, most people are totally surprised when they first see it in person. The lamp enhances them and they can't take their eyes off it. Kids have the funniest reactions when they first see it. Most often they’ll try to slip an object under the moon to make sure that nothing physically holds in the air. 

That is why the levitating moon lamp has been such a popular gift since it first appeared on the market a few years ago. Many of our customers have exhibited their lamps in business premises as a type of art installation. For others, it illuminates their homes with its gentle light as it rotates in the living room. It often happened that kids couldn't separate themselves from the lamp that is magically floating in the air and so it spontaneously became the night light for the kid's room. 


Levitating Moon Lamp is a unique gift in so many ways, and it will surely amaze your family and friends.
