Floating Bottle

See the bottle floating in mid-air? Spotted this while having dinner in Bangkok.

Make a guess then go to the comments section to see what that is all about.

What it is actually, is that there is an invisible string (think thin fishing line) tied to the bottle and suspending it in mid-air.

What it does is that the bottle, filled with water, acts as a counter-weight to keep the door closed at all times as that door leads to the kitchen.

It is an ingenious and cost effective solution to that of the auto-closing mechanism.
