  • My girlfriend is an engineer… her general rule of thumb is “if it looks like magic, it is probably magnets”

    That being said, this looks like a great idea, but the kickstarter is expensive… looks like I may have to try a DIY

  • That’s not nature that’s science.

  • Not sure if nature is lit or physics with magnets are lit

  • /r/INEEEEDIT

  • Crazy how nature do that.

  • I want this but cannabis

  • Wow I didn’t know bonsai floated in nature

  • As a plant I would hate this

  • Nothing about this is nature. Floating, no explanation necessary. And bonsai is the artificial limitation of a plants growth.

    Definitely cool, but not nature.

  • Where can I get one?

  • [removed]

  • Now, I know I’m going out on a limb here, and you might want to check the accuracy on this, but… *I don’t think* plants do this naturally.

  • That’s not a bonsai, that’s a kodekama

  • What about power outages? The dome-shaped base doesn’t really help.

  • This looks cool and all, until you knock the plant off balance and it goes hurtling towards the magnet destroying the soil ball.

  • Does the magnetic field not impact growth in any way?

  • I’m sure the balance tolerance is pretty tight, so any growth of the plant will cause it to fail. Definitely 🔥 though, even if for a limited time.

  • It’s cool and all but doesn’t belong in this sub imo

  • This reminds me of that game called mountain

  • How is this nature tho? bonsais don’t float naturally

  • Nature??

  • To be that guy… a bonsai tree isn’t nature being lit, at all. A bonsai is a tree grown in a pot or planter. About as unnatural as a growing tree can be.

  • What?

  • Now I truly believe we are living in the future.

  • How do you water it?

  • Reminds me of Flume’s recent cover art

  • These look like they belong in The Labyrinth or The Dark Crystal.

  • Is this a commercial or a Tool video?

  • I would LOVE one of these. But then I remember, “Yeah, the cats would DEFINITELY destroy it.”

  • Looked these up. [It seems that they start at ~$300 USD.](http://hoshinchu.com/)
