Quantum Levitation - Quantum Trapping in action

I know what you're thinking. Hoverboards like Marty McFly had is just around the corner, right? Maybe even a game of Quidditch. Not quite. Superconductors only have the field vanishing qualities during extremely cold temps. You would need room-temp conductors for that, which hasn't been discovered yet. Plus there's other components that factor in. But let's just keep the geek dream alive eh?

For a more detailed explanation, read the physics behind it.
