Submission + - Controlled Quantum Levitation Used To Build Wipeou (youtube.com)

gentryx writes: "Researchers at the Japan Institute of Science and Technology have build a miniature wipE'out" track using high temperature superconductors and quantum levitation. Right now this is fundamental research, but in the future large scale transportation systems could be build with technology akin to this.

I have a different vision: let Nintendo sell this as an accessory for the Wii U. I'd buy several of these tracks, let the gliders race through the whole house and track them on our TV!"
