Quantum Levitation Makes WipeOut Possible in Real Life (VIDEO)

Science is The Coolest. In the video above, researchers in Japan have used quantum levitation and video game inspiration to recreate a WipeOut race with models.

The researchers, working at the Japan Institute of Science and Technology, created a model WipeOut track with models that actually float above the track using physics. All it takes is some liquid nitrogen and a Ph.D., and you, too, could be recreating your favorite video game moments in the real world. Personally, I’m ready for my personal Jet Moto bike (or Imperial landspeeder!).
