Most of the levitation gadgets we’ve covered here at GeekAlerts have had some kind of useful functionality – a photo frame, an earth globe etc.
But the only purpose of this Cherry Wood Levitron is for you to have fun and be able to impress your friends, which is usually more than enough.
The classiest Levitron yet! High-tech design uses adjustable legs for easy leveling. Incorporates the most powerful rare earth magnets available! Unique base design amazes onlookers as the high-flying top levitates mysteriously above the opening in the center.
Here’s a video demonstration of this cool looking toy:

Levitron Omega now features a new powerful Neodymium magnet! Spin the top and watch it float—the LEVITRON spins and surfs on magnetic waves! Pass your hand above, underneath and around the top. It will continue to spin and float—only touching air! A challenge to master, a miracle to behold—the LEVITRON is an interactive puzzle which provides hours of entertainment. The more you practice, the longer you will be able to get the top to float.
The wooden Levitron is available at Science eStore ($40) and Amazon. (Update: Link removed, because the web pages no longer exist.)
Words can’t describe how cool the Levitron Top is!! I’ve never seen anything like it before. I purchased one from InnovaToys.com. I found their website through the manufacturer’s website. The guys at InnovaToys were very helpful and offered me advice on how to get the Levitron top to float – it was a bit tricky at first. Anyway I highly recommend this product. I’m sure you can purchase one from brick and mortar stores such as Brookstone but the toy isn’t so easy to find. So if you’re going to find one online, I recommend InnovaToys.
I visited amazon and found this item cost $42.39
so, I took Steven’s advice…I got it from Innovatoys.com, only $35.95
Yes, it looks like they’ve raised the price over at Amazon I’m afraid.
I think the price is too high..! I found cheaper one but I forgot the domain
