We’ve never had much of a green thumb but maybe we’ll have more luck with an air thumb? A small Japanese company based out of Kyushu has created a fun, poetic twist on indoor gardening. By utilizing the opposing forces of magnetic energy they’ve created a levitating plant called Air Bonsai.
The Air Bonsai consists of 2 main components, the “energy base,” made from Japanese ceramic, and the levitating “little star.” Both come with built-in magnets that enable the levitation. The base also comes with an AC adapter and needs to be plugged in.
Hoshinchu, the Kyushu-based workshop that created Air Bonsai, recently launched a crowd-funding campaign on Kickstarter to bring their product to the market. It appears that the basic Air Bonsai set starts at $200 and they’re targeting a delivery date of August 2016.
But note that the basic set is a DIY set and requires you to use your own plant. The workshop is offering various pre-made bonsai at higher pledge levels ($500 – $1,000) but, due to strict import restrictions, the plants will be procured locally and will likely differ from what’s pictured.

We’re happy everyone is so enthusiastic about this but we’re only a media outlet that reported on the story. Everyone interested in the Air Bonsai should contact Hoshinchu or pledge to their Kickstarter campaign (links to both are in the article).
