Magnetic levitation - MagLev

Suspending a superconducting disc above or below a set of permanent magnets. The magnetic field is locked inside the superconductor ; a phenomenon called 'Quantum Trapping'.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but it isn't TRULY frictionless. There is still friction from air resistance, just not from the friction between disc and track. Also, not to burst the bubbles of "HOVER CAR" hopefuls, the conductor needs to be super cooled by liquid Nitrogen to work, and the disc also had a sapphire crystal, which, I believe would be vastly expensive to make a car out of.

All I could think of were hover cars. Everywhere.

that is ******* epic.
User avatar #35 - TheOriginalNerd ONLINE (05/31/2012) [-]
but it needs to be super ******* cold and is impractical at the moment

Now try it at room temperature without cooling the super conductor.

**sanshi rolls 501** If trips, we make a giant one... and fool everyone it's a UFO

**penguinlife rolls 0,185** quads and we do it anyway.
