Cool Quarter tone frets

Hey guys, just an interesting video I found on this guy's quarter tone frets he installed. Hope you enjoy and try your hands at making these. (seeing as how the new quarter-toned Ibanez isn't available anywhere but Kuwait and UEN)
PS: in the comments, someone mentions something called a floating fret. what is that?

Re: Quarter tone frets


Not sure about the floating fret, but I would think it was a fret that was not slotted into the fretboard, but somehow attached to the neck.
