You have probably seen a super-cool levitation video before but this one has a nice explanation of the effect and a Mobius strip.
Hat tip: Boing Boing.
Mobius strips, like bacon, make everything better.
The polystyrene tray is amazing.
So the Ultimate Improver would be a Möbius strip of bacon.
That might be what killed the dinosaurs.
And superconducting sausage patty.
I remember seeing the Boaz TED talk on these. It’s pretty cool.
Nice video Alex.
That’s a good metaphor for life.
That the only option is to move along the track?
That if you create a magnetic levitation video you get a link on MR?
“Focusing on those specific technologies as “the solution” to a greener, more efficient, more sustainable energy supply model ignores the myriad ways innovation could solve the problems we face in ways we don’t necessarily think about. Yet, by subsidizing particular methods of doing so (like wind/solar), we tell the market “This is what you must pursue,” even if that isn’t the best way to achieve the goals we want to achieve. In reality, most truly meaningful scientific breakthroughs come about in remarkably creative and difficult-to-predict ways that defy the assumptions of the preexisting paradigm.”
