    Kinda lame, not at all like back to the future one.. since your know all the liquid nitrogen required for the super conductors..

    Now, all we have to do is dig up everything, implant magnets in almost every square of the world, and find a way to keep the superconductor magnet on the board from thawing out. Other than that... AWESOME!

    Superconducting magnets are spreading.

    Sure, it`s about as practical as cooling a cpu with liquid nitrogen, but hey... how else are you gonna get that effect?

    Wow, I did this in science class when I was 15. Not impressed.

    Where the hell did you go to high school, Windy? Mine didn`t even have actual glassware for chemistry, so yours having a bunch of liquid nitrogen is kind of annoying.

    you get large enough magnets, anything`s possible

    Oh come on... please? I am dying to know. Is it very impractical or very, very impractical?

    Magnets...dry ice...the cool thing about this wasn`t even shown, you can tilt the board at an angle and it will maintain that angle while moving.

    so if we made a skate park completely out of nd magnets... and inspected everyone carefully for metal objects... then we could have some fun.

    I`m going to say not even remotely close, since it needs a track to work.

    "I`m going to say not even remotely close, since it needs a track to work."

    Its quite close, and it could work without a straight track and move around in 2D

    It wouldn`t work for fat people like me.. lol, if it did even move, you`d hear a screeching noise from the board contacting the magnets, or whatever that is on the bottom..
