April fool: World-first Australian invention: the Anti-Gravity Trampoline arrives


April 2021 heralds a new age in personal anti-gravity technology, expressly designed for entertainment, rather than the floating beds and devices to transfer large items around as seen in sci-fi movies and TV shows, but how this technology evolves is yet to be seen.

UPDATE: This is an April Fool's joke. Hopefully, one day, it will be real! :-)

Original story continues:

Billed as the trampoline to change the world, the Vuly Air Trampoline is a marvel of modern technology and a powerful imagination, which Vuly's CEO and Founder, Joe Andon, clearly has in spades. 

Vuly bills itself as "Australia’s leading, safest and favourite trampoline company", with the official release to arrive on April 6, 2021.

Inspired by NASA technology for training astronauts for replicating weightless flight and Zero G gravity, the new VULY AIR trampoline is a world first Australian invention by the Brisbane based company.

The local economy will get a boost, too, with the Vuly Air trampoline to create 70 new tech and manufacturing jobs, generating over $50 million in export sales in the first 12 months.

Here is the video! The article continues thereafter, please read on:

Vuly Trampolines founder Joe Andon said “An anti-gravitational trampoline has always been a dream of mine. Our R & D team has been working on this for 7 years. Now it’s come to fruition.

"At Vuly we want to make the impossible, possible. Vuly Air is a game changer. It will create 70 new tech and manufacturing jobs in South East Queensland and over $50 million in export sales globally during the first 12 months.

"It already has other applications. We’ve been in discussions with Richard Branson’s people in the UK about utilising our technology for aviation and long haul flights to assist in reducing deep vein thrombosis.

"NASA want to utilise Vuly Air in their astronaut training programme as well as its potential for GPE, Gravitational Potential Energy. However for now this is a product marketed for children from 12+ years (and adults) and is something anyone can have in their backyard. We've taken care of all the magnetic repulsion elements and all a customer has to do is plug it in!”

Andon continues “Vuly Play will be selling this historic Facebook post as an NFT for when we first reveal this anti-gravity technology to the world. Proceeds will be provided to the Australian Olympic Trampoline High Performance Program arranged by Darren Gillis.

"Like Steve Jobs had his team sign the first Apple computers so we are getting our VULY AIR team to sign and number the “black box” for the first ones off the production line. They will become collectors items.”

Of course, just like the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro series with its internal magnets that have the potential to disarm lifesaving pacemakers, people with pacemakers need to make the weighty decision to stay weighted and, when on, not to get on a Vuly Air or use it, and we make people accept an on-screen prompt at purchase, during installation and when adding new users to ensure they certify they are not using a pacemaker, and that Vuly is completely indemnified from lawsuits regarding pacemaker users.

In an obvious big to generate a greater share of publicity, Joe Andon has announced the first 16 units off the production line will be gifted to the following globally distinguished achievers and a handful of organisations close to Joe's heart.

Numbers 1 to 16 will be gifted as follows to :

  1. Harry & Meghan’s son Archie.
  2. Donald & Melania Trump’s son Barron.
  3. Beyonce & Jayzee’s daughter Blue Ivy
  4. Kim Kardashian & Kanye West’s North,Psalm, Chicago and Saint.
  5. Smithsonian Institution.
  6. Greta Thunberg
  7. Malia and Sasha Obama
  8. Malala Yousafzi
  9. Prince George, 3rd in line to the throne, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
  10. Prime Minister Scott Morrison.
  11. Elon Musk and his wife Grimes son X Æ A-12.
  12. Chris Hemsworth & Elsa Pataky’s family.
  13. Australian Institute of Sport for Gymnastics Australia’s Olympic team.
  14. Australian Institute of Sport for Swimming Australia’s Diving team.
  15. Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry’s daughter Daisy.
  16. Mark Wahlberg’s family …plus Vuly Air trampolines will be in all 20 Wahlburgers restaurants across Australia and New Zealand as well as in all 50 Wahlburgers globally.

Such innovation will also make your wallet weightless, as the Vuly Air retails for $7395.00 incl GST. Pre-orders are available now at the Vuly website

We contacted Joe earlier who announced that Richard Branson completed his two mandatory weeks of quarantine so that he can appear, with Joe, at a press event due to be held on the steps of the Opera House, where a demo model will be in operation for select and vetted for pacemaker members of the public will be able to feel what it's like to be weightless.

Indeed, it'll be a vastly quicker way to get weightless than Jenny Craig, who is also considering a competition where one lucky customer will receive a Vuly Air to inclusively inspire them to experience true weightlessness in what is set to become a special therapy for non-weight bearing exercises.

However, Joe has advised that if Richard Branson doesn't BASE jump from one of the sails of the Opera House by precisely midday AEDT, it won't just be a sign that his jump is yet to come, but that we'll all be April fools.
