It's Friday: magnetic levitation helps create the first human powered tractor trailer

Ben on MySpace has video of the first human powered tractor trailer. According to the video (which you can watch below the fold), the trailer was taken on route 130 in New Jersey .... and the cops pulled them over. What possible reason could the police have had to pull them over? Anyway, the video says the police did not understand how a "bike" could pull a 6,000 pound trailer but I think it has something to do with the "Ground Surface Magnetic Levitation" mentioned at the website. AutoblogGreen writes a lot about green automotive solutions from the big three and well funded start ups but, hey, it's Friday! Let us consider the possibility that Ben from New Jersey may have solved all our transportation problems. We'd be a lot more convinced if the video showed the trailer actually moving.
