This past weekend, Google hosted its annual Google Solve for X event, which calls the brighest men and women in the world to showcase their pioneering efforts in science and technology. The hope is here that some of them could be developed into solutions for the world's most pressing problems.
While Google has yet to share anything from the event, investor Steve Jurvetson managed to capture one of the cool demonstration for us see. Now, science isn't my strongest trait, but I will try to make sense of what is happening here: according to Gigaom, the demonstration involves a super cold superconductor puck, which in its quantum state, conducts electricity and repels magnetic fields. As a result, if it's placed on top of magents, it will literally levitate.
As you can see in the video above, the puck starts to hover around the magentic track without it touching base.
Let this rattle in your brain for a while and try to imagine what the future could hold.
