Hover boards not so far away?

Marty McFly may have not been too far off! This Video shows an object being LOCKED in place above a magnet. The science is a Sapphire wafer is coated in a thin super conductor layer and plastic wrap. This is then cooled in liquid nitrogen. The magnetic field penetrates  into a superconductor through a form of discrete flux tubes! The superconductor pins the tubes and locks the object in mid air! This causes friction less movement while locked in space! The object can even been tilted at an angle and flipped and wont fall! Looks like soon we wont have to go back doc.


  1. I remember when I was in highschool and there were rumors flying that there was going to be a hover board.... never happened :(

  2. That's what i'm saying! It's just gunna be another thing to get insurance on though.
