This is science. Wipe-out Style.

by Matt Johnston on January 4, 2012

“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.”

Amazing stuff – this is the sort of inspired stuff that hackerspaces were invented for.

Maybe. Probably. But if you look at Quantum Levitation videos, you can see it’s possible. Which is what matters.

Yeah, that’s true…
But without financial support you can’t gett the experience, I guess.
Never the less it may be important for the future of cars, just imagine a car, that no more needs any fuel or electricity.
But that needs alot of development.
