LEVITRON FROM-BELOW
ELECTROMAGNETIC LEVITATION

 

Levitation Arts’ Levitron® electromagnetic levitation system is the world’s first commercial

from-below levitation technology.  Although others have tried to copy it, and even claimed

inventorship, Levitation Arts is the sole worldwide patent holder of the method.  Originally

invented by Dr. Lorne Whitehead at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada

the technology was first patented in 1992Levitation Arts currently owns next-generation

patents, or patents pending, granted to Dr. Whitehead and his UBC colleague, Dr. Harold Davis

in the U.S., and worldwide in Japan, Australia, South Africa, and China, among others.

LEVITRON SPIN-STABILIZED
PERMANENT MAGNET LEVITATION

Levitation Arts’ famous Levitron® “antigravity” tops were invented in 1976, and patented

in 1983 by Roy M. Harrigan of Vermont.  He initially contacted several scientists, who

told him that what he wanted to do was impossible.  Nevertheless, he doggedly continued

his experiments until, after spinning his homemade top for “maybe the thousandth time”

it hung magically suspended in mid-airEven then he had to battle with the patent examiner

who rejected his patent application several times before Roy finally convinced him that he

had indeed discovered the “Holy Grail” of levitation using nothing but permanent magnets.
