.. fuckin' magnets!
Is this legit?
Regardless of how that's working, it looks pretty bad ass.
i know a shit about physics but it seems like this bastard is
touching the smoking spinning thing (liquid nitrogen flavored damn magnet!?) with his BARE hands!?
shouldn't this shockfrost his fingers instantly?
As long as they are dry it should be fine afaik
I wonder how would these things work on a bigger scale. Hopefully in the future we can live in floating cities where the city itself fuels the platform with the liquid nitrogen.
Is this thread from 2011, or a bump?
Maglevs have been around for a long time now.
That is pretty damn crazy! Very cool. I would not touch that with my bare hands...
Few years ago i predicted that the future is in managing heat - designing materials conducting and insulating it perfectly.
The main problem with superconductors is that they only superconduct at very low temperatures.
Haven't any of you guys played Transport Tycoon?
I remember being fascinated about the whole concept as a kid. I also loved how my Maglev trains don't decelerate while going uphill.
God, that was so cool! Thanks for the vid, now an interesting read!
This is quite different to maglev. Normal magnetic levitation doesn't lock things in place, it merely pushes them in the direction of the magnetic field.
It's totally legit btw, seen it done in a lab myself.
Think I heared something about that in shool that it evaporates as soon as it touches skin, because of the temperature on the skin.
Or something like that?
I'm not certain enough at all about that to try it out though
I dont get how that works, why it needs to be frozen and what you can do with it. But it does look cool!
Freezing things gets their atoms closer together and this makes them more conductive.
Ahh! thanks, good to know
