Amazing demonstration of magnetic levitation

Sceintists from Tel-Aviv University demonstrate "quantum superconductors locked in a magnetic field". Or as I like to call it - HOVERING MAGNET WIZARDRY.

When I work out what the hell is happening here I'll let you know. Until then, all I can say is bring on the hoverboards!

Update: It is, apparently, the Meissner effect, and has not very much to do with quantum mechanics, according to the reader that emailed me.

Thanks to NerdyChristie and para_sight for sharing this video.
