So, we can create dinosaurus with almost life like quality on computers and make Superman fly but what about water? This video is the result of the new research in computational fluid dynamics and computer graphics by Ron Fedkiwm, Assistant Professor at Stanford Computer Science. We think it comes pretty close to the real thing. What do you say?
"Superconductivity is a phenomenon that can occur in certain materials at low temperatures, characterized by exactly zero electrical resistance and the exclusion of the interior magnetic field (also known as the Meissner effect)"
In plain English that means whenever certain materials are made really cold, magnets can float over it - hovering for a long time, and even create an invisible field that allows you to lift objects as you can see in the video. In this experiment liquid nitrogen is used to cool the material to a very low temperature.
Imagine if roads were made of this stuff. You could strap magnets on cars and get them to fly. Flying cars, or flying people.. shoes - you name it, this at a mass scale can be something. Very coool.> Read more
