Oh holy balls, it's a Rubik's Cube with the structural integrity of a marshmallow. In laymen's terms. In technical terms, the Float table is "a matrix of 'magnetized' wooden cubes that levitate with respect to one another." Honestly, I don't care if we talk about it in the language of physics, in laymen's terms, or in Huttese--no matter what you say and how you say it, I love this thing. Not that I needed more of an excuse to sit on the couch and dink around, but at least with a Float I'll be dinking around with my coffee table instead of dinking around with my dink for a change.

Float's stacked repelling cubes maintain their equilibrium with the support of a tensile steel cable woven framework. Tables appear rigid, and can still hold standard coffee table objects, but when impacted by an external force, such as my hand when I touch it, or my face when I step barefoot on a LEGO brick and wipe out during a failed attempt to hop to the sofa on one foot, they lazily ripple and deform before re-stabilizing and settling back into place.

Float models include a coffee table with 6 x 3 x 3 cubes and overall dimensions of 38" x 18.5" x 18.5", and a side table with 3 x 3 x 3 cubes and overall dimensions of 18.5" x 18.5" x 18.5".
