Magnetic Levitation Seems Magical in Slow Motion

By Jamie Condliffe on at

What do you get if you take some magnets, superconductors, liquid nitrogen and a slow-mo camera with which to film it all? This kind of magical footage is what.

This demonstration presented by the guys over at Earth Unplugged of magnetic levitation isn't much new—we've all heard of it, and maybe even seen it—but the video includes some brilliant footage. It's mesmerising. I can't be the only one who thinks this is proof that hoverboards will certainly one day exist. [Earth Unplugged]
