About Us

Our NeoLev® Board technology uses diamagnetic levitation which is one method for magnetic suspension without the use of control devices, electromagnets, moving parts or materials requiring sub-freezing temperatures.

Popular culture and science fiction enthusiasts have portrayed hovering vehicles in Hollywood movies and books, yet actual or scale models which levitate in place and move around haven’t existed for the masses. UNTIL NOW! NeoLev is the first to really get fun off the ground. Literally.

The NeoLev® team has evolved from an inventor tinkering in his garage into a talented team of engineers, designers, social media experts, consultants, and suppliers dedicated to the research, development and manufacturing of the NeoLev® Board and its technologies.
