[Sticky] Technology & Other Things
This is an area for posts that don't fit anywhere else. Posts to discuss new technical products or trends, tech news, and interesting research subjects.
No steadfast rules here, but please keep it confined to topics that are somewhat technical. This is NOT the place to discuss politics, world news events (unless of course, they are technical), sports and entertainment or celebrity gossip. While those subjects can be fascinating there are many better venues to discuss them!

Everything I've seen involves superconductors, or really high magnetism "levitating" on a copper plate, but, nothing so far that actually passes for something useful. I think these 2 videos are probably the best examples.
The Searl Effect is interesting because it seems to create its own superconductive qualities, and while the spinning magnets on the copper plate look cool, it would require you to have all your floors replaced with sheets of copper, which I didn't find to be very cost effective
