Controlled Quantum Levitation on a Wipe'Out Track

A very cool Quantum Levitation Racing video from Japan. The mini-Wipeout game works using "quantum levitation". When super-cooled (below -301 F), an electrically and magnetically neutral object coated with a ceramic layer - in this case, the ships - becomes a superconductor. This is an object that conducts electricity with no resistance, and no energy loss.
"Here is a short footage on our recent work on quantum levitation. We were inspired by the game Wipe'out to do our work. With this new technology, we hope to revolutionize the world of motor transport; Maybe in a near future we could assist to a real Wipe'out race"
