Air Bonsai: ‘Floating’ maglev trees achieves $500,000 on Kickstarter

Hoshinchu, a Japanese start-up in Southern Japan, has gathered over $500,000 (£349,000) in funding for its new project Air Bonsai. The cultivation of the miniature plant is an ancient Japanese botanical art, but the company has added a hint of modern technology to make the plant floats with the power of magnetic levitation.
