This is pretty cool!
That is great!!! LOL So Cool!!
Amazing! Personally I'm not sure I'd get on a magnetic car traveling along the side of (but not actually touching!) a four story building! Very cool technology indeed though!
Fascinating! Thanks for the link.
That was the coolest video I have seen in a while!
Great. I wonder how long it will be before we see a real train operating in revenue service that way.
It seems to me, there needs to be a good way to "refuel" the liquid nitrogen.
Dare I say, Supercoolsign1
Though I wouldn't want to be on one of the building-hugging trains if its superconductor went above the 'transition temperature'...
Interesting concept. The old steam engines needed water tanks every so many miles. I wonder if the new ones will need nitrogen tanks along their routes?
That guy must have naturally insulated hands....grabbing the container with -183 degree liquid nitrogen
There will always be "rails" of some sort. In this example, without that metal trackway to follow, the model train wouldn't work at all.
Since trains do not come with positive steering, they will always need something to insure they go where they are supposed to.
That was cool.....I'm skeptical..Upside down?
Since Mythbusters are looking for "viral videos", I sent them the link.
We'll have to see if they use it....
They might...if they can figure out a really spectacular way to blow it up.
