Nice! Now how do we fit this into some sort of conspiracy to take over mankind?

Very cool technology.

It's magnetic levitation in a computer controlled magnetic field. The computer control allows the levitated object to be manipulated.

It is pretty neat but moving a ball bearing around in a magnetic field is not going to take over the world.

Thanks for the breakdown.

Pseudo-science. Half the terms he said are made up. Why can't these people be forthcoming and say "we're theorizing the potential of anti-gravity tech" ugh.

Reminds me of acoustic levitation which is very real.

Also very cool.

Maybe these two technologies can work together?

Got it, thanks.

That is pretty cool.

It was a light hearted statement. I thought yours was too? Was I wrong?

Magnetic levitation is not anti gravity.

Here is another article from 2012

I wonder how much further this tech is today?

Very true.....Though the first thought that came to my mind, was what if they develop this tech to the nth degree. Imagine a room full of tiny magnetically maneuvered particles. A person could enter wearing a VR headset, and the particles could simulate texture of the virtual objects encountered.

Yeah, I know it would be pretty far off in the future. But I REALLY want a holodeck in my lifetime!

Hutchinson...crazy man. Again...sort of...so.certainly not new so much. Different angle like his was...similar...but achieved previously...

Interesting, but it is not true anti-gravity but simply an applied force greater than gravity.
An anti-gravity device would have within itself the power to repell or negate gravity.
This ball does neither. Actually, gravity is part of the reason how it can be moved as the artificial electromagnetic force is precisely attuned in conjunction with gravity. In short, a true anti-gravity device would inherently ignore the effects of gravity.

The maglev train was the first thing that came to mind watching this video, this tech could take it to a whole new level.

Imagine a magnetic platform surrounding a building where multiple elevators can operate freely, moving to any location on the outside of the building. Or super warehouses that self assemble all of their cargo. Plenty of uses for such technology exist and I'm thinking construction and transportation.

Gee, thanks for bursting that bubble, Phage. I was already making plans to use it to take over the universe.

You're such a killjoy!
