How many engineering students does it take to build a floating light bulb? Just one. University of Queensland student Chris Rieger combined magnetic levitation and wireless power transfer like peanut butter and jelly to create a fancy floating sandwich. And by sandwich I mean light bulb.

Watch the magic happen in the video below:

Rieger says he’s working on a much better version of the bulb, one that will have a built-in dimmer and height control. Drop a comment on YouTube if you’re interested in buying that improved model to help Rieger decide if it’s worth making multiple units.
