fascinating. I want to do this with my beers; super cold and right there when you need it!

Wish we had videos like this in my science classes instead of lame concept drawings in our old textbooks.

When electricity was discovered, it was only a curiosity like this 'Supraconductivity Quantum Levitation'.
What will be the future current life applications of this discovery, I cannot imagine now... Maybe there is some other discoveries to make to associate with this, leading to ultra effective transportation?

#5 soon all trains will run on liquid nitrogen.

#3 Wait until we're get superconduction at room temperature. The one in the video is likely liquid nitrogen cooled which means it is around 77K (-196°C; -321°F). Also from wiki: "April 1911 - Kamerlingh Onnes discovers superconductivity...As of 2009, the highest-temperature superconductor (at ambient pressure) is mercury barium calcium copper oxide (HgBa2Ca2Cu3Ox), at 135 K and is held by a cuprate-perovskite material, which possibly reaches 164 K under high pressure." After a century, superconductivity is still very much a mystery T.T

imagine that being explained in 13th century to the inquisition... instant death!

That's got the wow factor vote. Maybe this is how flying saucers work, using the earth's magnetic field. This is just the beginning!

A scientist with years of studying hard behind his back, tons of experience, and supposedly a well developed common sense handles a piece of matter frozen with liquid nitrogen (-196°C; -321°F) without even rubber gloves on? Well...

#13 It's covered with a layer of frozen condesation that acts as an insulator. Still cold, but not liquid nitrogen cold.

#14 That explains, why he doesn't get instant frostbites, (like if one was to put his hand into a bowl with liquid nitrogen for an instant and quickly remove it nothing would happen to it) but it does not explain the overall attitude. After all, isn't it scientists, who should be the first to follow safety rules they create themselves like "handle dry ice (which is not nearly as cold as liquid nitrogen) with extreme caution and rubber gloves on"?
Still, an amazing demonstration of superconductivity!
