Quantum levitation and quantum locking is the future of transportation on rails! Watch Boaz Almog's TED talk below (hat tip @Scrataliano).
"But what is the future of quantum levitation and quantum locking? Well, let me answer this simple question by giving you an example. Imagine you would have a disk similar to the one I have here in my hand, three-inch diameter, with a single difference. The superconducting layer, instead of being half a micron thin, being two millimeters thin, quite thin. This two-millimeter-thin superconducting layer could hold 1,000 kilograms, a small car, in my hand. Amazing. Thank you." - Boaz Almog ( transcript)
