If the Hoverit Lounger makes you feel like you’re “floating on air,” it’s because you are. The distinctive chair utilizes the “repelling force of magnets in the top of the base and in the bottom of the bed” to keep a person suspended several inches above the ground. To ensure that the chair “won’t float away” entirely, bars on both sides keep the magnets aligned.
