Researchers in Scotland discover levitation effect. No more friction?
Professor Ulf Leonhardt and Dr. Thomas Philbin, from the University of St Andrews in Scotland, have found a way to reverse the Casimir force, causing objects to repel instead of attract. The research could help pave the way for tiny machines with zero friction, which could have many automotive uses. Additionally, many of you are probably thinking of moving humans via levitation, and the team has thought of that too. At this point, hoverboards are still a ways off. Maybe still in our lifetime? But remember, "hoverboards don't work on water, unless you've got POWER!"
