Patented Electromagnetic Levitation Technology

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 1992. Levitation 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.

Trademarked Spin-Stabilized Levitation Technology

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-air. Even 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.
