The base also comes with an AC adapter and needs to be plugged in. Air Bonsai, a system for magnetically levitating small bonsai trees several inches above a small electrified pedestal. The system allows you to create your own miniature Avatar-like worlds with tiny trees or shrubs planted in balls of moss, but is also powerful enough to suspend special ceramic dishes of fragments of lava rock. 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.
