Py: A team on a mission to levitate the ancient pyramids
Inspired by the mystery of the capstone, design company Flyte aims to construct Py, the largest magnetically levitating artwork in the world.
Simon Morris, the creator of Flyte, is on a journey to discover the mystery of the pyramids through levitation. Design company Flyte aims to build Py, the largest magnetically levitating artwork globally, by combining modern technology with ancient wisdom.
Py consists of 5 custom-built mag-levitation platforms capable of levitating up to 100 kg/220.4 lbs of weight. The expert team at Flyte plans to build a 20 feet/6 meters tall pyramid. Py will be the most comprehensive artwork worldwide, and it will be displayed at the art galleries of New York and Los Angeles.
"We are here because we want to share something greater than we have done before: to serve a higher purpose through art and science and share it with the world. To us, the ancient Pyramids is the world's greatest art piece, and our goal is to levitate it." - Simon Morris, an American artist, inventor, and creator of Flyte.
Some historical mysteries may never be solved. For example, many experts have tried the guessing game to find out the mystery of the missing capstone. But the mystery lives on. The ancient pyramids of Giza are no doubt one of the world's greatest mysteries. Remarkably few pyramids have survived the course of time. Some say they were looted by thieves, while others claim they were never built at Giza.
The pyramidion or capstone is the uppermost piece of a pyramid. It is said to be the most prominent piece that gives the pyramid its actual purpose. Customarily covered in gold leaf, the capstone would reflect the sun's rays, serving as a beacon of light. Thus, Py (https://www.kickstarter.com/
Flyte aims to build Py and make it available for public display by early 2022. And to turn this into a reality, it will go live on Kickstarter on June 8, 2021, at 1 pm EST. Py can be backed here (https://www.kickstarter.com/
