I'm sure this is a great levitation and I thank Piz for the demo, but for $150+, I don't understand why people are getting it cracked or damaged. It's not computing for me. Smile I may eventually buy the levi (first one by the way), but till then, I need a guarantee since this really isn't chump change I'm paying with.

Boy; I'm still waiting for the package to arrive. I preordered. Oh well. I bet this one's going to be good. I don't mind tinkering a little to beef things up. but first, I need to have it in my hands...


I know what you mean. I pre-ordered too and still no show at my door. Well, at least we know enough to be careful with the wood part. ;-)

I've been playing with this for a couple of days. It's a wonderful idea and works exactly as advertised.

You can easily work around any fragility problems you may be concerned about. Just glue an appropriately sized piece of plastic, aluminum or wood over the correct spot. You can find a thing called a "furniture floater" at your local hardware store. I find one of the correct size the very first time I went looking. Gave a sturdy fit and finish to the outfit, too. You can then use ANY shoe, soft-soled, or not. I've been using flip-flops.

Then, I got thinking, and...

I've now completely reconfigured the ****#### with some mods allowing a bare-footed performance with a 360 degree viewing window.

I've spent a lifetime looking for a bare-footed self-levi that I could perform anywhere, and ONE has helped me realize that dream--thanks Peter!

Wow Ben I'm gonna look for that "furniture floater" thing. Any alternate names to that material? YESSS I can use it with the thin-sole I want. I hope it's easy to find at the hardware store...

Does anyone have tips with wearing shorts/bermudas with ONE? It has the exact same problem with E1, as I originally suspected. I lost count how many times "it" flashed while wearing berms. Berms + flip flops = Best Lev (except for the balance issue, same problem as E1).

Zone,

These are the things that people put under the legs of furniture to prevent the floor from scratching. All sorts of sizes and shapes are available. Should not be too hard to find a perfect fit. Failing that, just have someone cut the correct sized piece from a sheet of acrylic. Easy fix. (or two-ply wood).

Got it. I was trying ONE today with a thick-sole Nike shoes that I hated and never wore in years. Now I can go back to my usual pair of shoes. Thanks for sharing the tip! No more fragility problem. If anyone has a solution to the berms problem, please PM me!

I haven't received mine yet either...

Ben, will you explain how you reconfigured the device for a 360 degree barefooted levitation to those who own it? I'd be extremely interested.

Hi guys,

I simply thought about this outside the box. Peter has presented a wonderful concept and it has so many possibilities. There are many OTHER ways to put this to use other than the way it is supplied.

For now I will not tip any of my work. I'm keeping it for myself. Sorry, but that's how much I love using this. It is also not very respectful to Peter if I describe how I completely took this back to scratch and remade it in a completely different manner. Peter gives you everything you need, his product performs exactly as advertised, AND A WHOLE LOT MORE IS POSSIBLE if you start experimenting.

I hope the tip about strengthening the unit is useful.

Please NO PMs -- I cannot answer them.

Cheers

Ben

I am still waiting on mine also. I would imagine they are being held up by customs, not sure why the HP shipment made it through so quickly and the pre-orders did not.
