Wow...how cool is that...(pun is incidental..lol) I can't believe he could touch that without gloves. Awesome. Thanks for the video.

How long before the MIB shut this site down?

A long time ago I read that someone invented a transportation system using magnets but the idea was suddenly crushed...probably sitting in a oil company vault somewhere.

I'm always skeptical when I hear those stories. For one thing there are so many different variations. But most importantly, scientific advancement can be hard to hide. If one guy in his garage stumbles on a carbeurator that gets 100 mpg on tap water, you can bet someone else will soon figure it out too.

I've heard a lot of talk in my life about some guy who lives in <insert town name> that figured out how to make his car get 100 mpg, but he sold his patent to the oil company and they destroyed it.

If there was a device that could get 100 mpg on plain water and BP owned patent and design, they would be selling them for $500K tomorrow.

The video shown in the OP is the real deal. Light years beyond Hutchison the mad Canuck and his Kraft Dinner parlor tricks. Those students have to show how their thingy works and show that anyone can do it. I think its totally badass and I gotta give it up. It's the coolest thing I've seen in a while.

Keep in mind, there is still an energy input into the system. I assume he's using liquid nitrogen as his cooling method. But it can also be done electrically. I assume his magnets are also electromagnets.
And since its still susceptible to resistance, something has to keep it moving forward.
