    Quantum Levitation

    That is just as you say. Is that the start of repulsor technology as depicted in Star Trek and Star Wars? If this is real imagine the applications. As with you I also don't understand how, but who cares if this works.

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    So what does one do with this awesome technology then? Silly question, one makes Wipeout a reality of course!

    That is really cool!

    Just think, if they had a budget of F1 that really could become reality and we could see Wipeout for real as a sport!

    I think at the moment the liquid Nitrogen is the stumbling block in this technology though.
