1954 Karlsson Cat Levitator

    Newer Older

    Cats love anti gravity. I bet you didn't know that. This device was invented by Swedish immigrant Per Karlsson in the early 50s, and a small series was produced in Wellington for a while. But people didn't go for it as much as Karlsson had hoped; maybe because they didn't fancy having the cat hover around too much. In case you're wondering what the little cap with the "antlers" is the cat is wearing on its head, it's the mind reader. The cat steers the machine with her thoughts, because, how else would she.

      Wie sagte Karlsson zu Lillebror, als die Dampfmaschine explodierte und im Kinderzimmer abfackelte: "Das stört keinen großen Geist..."!
      Eine Lebensweisheit vom weltbesten Karlsson vom Dach. ;-)

      For the life of me, I don't see why this did take off and become successful. Your lovely photo demonstrates it beautifully :-)

      I think Glenn Beck would look cute in one of these with the little metal cap on his head.
