That's awesome. I wonder if the cost of cooling a significant amount of liquid nitrogen would make it economically feasible to use this on trains.

My uncle was on a team that was developing the technology for the electromagnetic train system in Japan. Though I am sure the process is quiet different, it seems like it would be more cost effective than freezing things with liquid nitrogen.

Is it really levitation if it hangs from under the track?

quantum suspension train > quantum levitation train > regular, boring floaty train

The presenter kept telling the interviewer that it's quantum locking, but he wasn't listening (I guess).
