      first to say you are a jackass.

    Chive why so late to the party? I've watched this 7 times already, but it's fucking awesome every time.

    • Durrrrr

      Well I've watched it 8 times. I'm better than you

  • mr_johnson

    Thats pretty neat… How neat is that?!

    • SpacemanSpiff_

      A pretty one

      Isn't this extremely old technology? We've been levitating superconductors for years now. They put some magnets in a loop – big deal.

    • John Goodman

      you can tell its a quantum levitation just by the way it is….what a beaut

    • onebadmofo just said how neat it is.

  • JAFitC

    Cool. Pun on the fact it uses liquid nitrogen intended.

    Maybe we'll finally get our hoverboards

    • mjfox

      i give it 30 years

      "Great Scott Marty!"

      • Ryan Smith

        as soon as they can create superconductors at room temperature it will be done

  • PoorDawg

    Burn the witch!

    Does not compute

  • Joeyk

    One step closer to getting my hover board..

    • Juan


  • Ari Darmon

    Mind Blown!!

    • Logic

      MIND ALSO BLOWN!!!! Hover cars here we come!

  • Underbaker

    Is this for real? Awesome if it is.

    • 2pumpdump

      it has to be real. its on the intraweb isnt it?

  • Cakemaster

    I just came

  • WhoreIslandNative

    That is Epic

  • EZRA2

    Nike needs to get on it if thet are going to have hover boards and automatic shoe laces by 2015

  • Solatso

    The awesomeness of that just broke my brain.

  • xaqdank

    Its not floating…Its locked. Dumbass!

  • Stan_Dalone

    Very interesting will have to look for more

  • Sea

    But thatd be a cold subway ride

    Dont worry there won't be any hoverboards in the near future.
    This effect has been understood for like 50 years and the highest temperature you can do this with is like 137 Kelvin if I'm not mistaken. Just hope for some superconducting at room temperature and there will be the slight possibility of ever building a hover board.

    • NotFriendly

      Please do not destroy my dreams with logic and science, the fact that I can't even ride a skateboard and have the balance of a drunk toddler does not discourage me from the notion that I'd still be awesome on a hoverboard.

    • Matt

      We understand that it happens and the conditions in which it happens but we do not yet understand why it happens. If we could understand why it happens then we would be able to recreate (with some difficulty) the effect under different conditions.

  • haystacks

    thats the most ballin' ass shit i've seen today!!!

    • Barabba

      Right bob . magnetic levitation with superconductors near absolute zero °.

  • Coldzilla

    Very cool!

    Now do that with beer 😉

  • Brian

    I want my hover board and I want it now!

    • wedgie

      want in one hand and shat in the other…see which gets full first

      • dublyou

        The english is strong with this one. /

  • Haden

    Sweet.. but im america.. we use gas, oil or nothing…damn it

  • ICP

    Fucking magnets, how do they work?
