The first time you see quantum levitation, it's hard not to be blown away. As Arthur C. Clarke said, "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." The Internet, as it turns out, is quick to remind us of this on a daily basis.
The "Japan Institute of Science and Technology" has more directly targeted people like you and me with its work, which brings the concept of futuristic racing series Wipeout to life on a miniature scale. However, the presentation and lack of details surrounding this project make me skeptical that it's legitimate, despite the seemingly magical nature of quantum levitation.
Conceptually, I'm satisfied with this little setup, even if it isn't wholly on the level. I'd buy one. (Assuming it was for real, of course.)
