Quantum Levitation using Nanoparticle Superconductors…

The ability to effortlessly defy gravities surly bonds has been dreamed of since man first peered upwards. Levitation is one expression of this dream and recent advances in quantum superconductivity are helping to make the dream a reality.

Presented for your viewing pleasure is the spectacular work of Dr Boaz Almog and others who have been demonstrating the latest quantum superconductor discoveries that are allowing us to defy gravity in new and fascinating ways. Sit back, relax and prepare to be introduced to the train set of the future.

The WipeOut Quantum Levitation Hoax, Wipe Out 2048 And How It All Leads Back To The PSP Vita Worldwide Release…

Levitation, the ability to appear to defy gravities bonds, has long fascinated humanity. From flying carpets to flying nuns it has long been part of our culture. Quantum Levitation is such an attention grabber that even the latest marketing push by Sony has made use of Quantum Levitation.

The latest viral video to highlight quantum levitation it turns out is a fake, a brilliantly executed rendering of WipeOut 2048 in real life. The video uses computer generated graphics to render what is a simulated real life WipeOut 2048 slot car set.

Not intended as a demonstration of toys in the year 2048, which it actually achieves effortlessly but instead intended to be a part of the build-up to the world wide release of WipeOut 2048 and the PS Vita, all on February 22nd and 23rd. There are many other examples of this build up too, little snippets around the web that all point to the end of February release. With the cogs of the Sony machine slowly gaining speed finally the rest of the world will get a chance to test the PS Vita waters.

Quantum Levitation, The Flying Quantum Rug…

Levitation, the ability to appear to defy gravities bonds, has long fascinated humanity. From flying carpets to flying nuns it has long been part of our culture.There is a modern take on this ancient story as well, Superconducting Levitation. Seemingly able to cancel out gravity and allow objects to levitate, it seems to be the answer to giving us mere mortals at least one of superman’s powers, the ability to fly. Unfortunately superconductors don’t cancel out gravity and we will never fly under our own power, undies on the outside maybe. Instead the levitating effect called Quantum Levitation uses a number of the unusual properties of superconductors to create the effect.All current superconductors need the cold to enter their superconducting phase. In this phase electrons are able to move about without any resistance, power loss or heat generated, which is typical for most wires or electronics that use ordinary conductors. Many different materials exhibit superconducting properties, from metals to the latest ceramics most substances have been tested for these properties. Ceramics are the latest so called high temperature superconductors. High temperature in the world of superconductors means -200 degrees Celsius. Cold enough to be cooled by the cheaper liquid nitrogen instead of liquid helium. Once a material is cooled sufficiently and enters its superconducting phase it’s electrical and magnetic properties change. Electricity looses all resistance and magnetic fields are forced to go around a superconductor. Continue reading Quantum Levitation, The Flying Quantum Rug…
