Summary:
Japanese engineers have developed a new system of acoustic levitation, using sound waves from four audio speakers to suspend solid objects in three dimensional space. The system brings a new level of control to the manipulation of objects for experimentation without having to place them in containers. Rob Muir reports. Video provided by Reuters

Quantum Levitation: When Science Imitates Magic

Quantum Levitation: When Science Imitates Magic

FORA.tv (Nov. 16, 2012) — In Oct 2011, Boaz Almog and Barak Deutscher from the superconductivity group at Tel-Aviv University lead by Prof. Guy Deutscher, demonstrated how a superconductor disk is trapped in a surrounding magnetic field, a phenomenon called "Quantum Levitation" or "Quantum Locking". By using the exceptional large scale superconductors produced by Mishael Azoulay, they are able to demonstrate a quantum effect that, although well known to physicists worldwide, was never seen and demonstrated this way. In addition to developing new superconductor technologies and applications, the superconductivity group in Tel-Aviv University is dedicated to teaching and educating the young and adults about superconductivity, through the unique and counter-intuitive phenomena of 'quantum locking' and 'quantum levitation'.

Hot Tug Brings Hot Tub Comfort Onto the Water

Buzz60 (Oct. 4, 2012) — HotTug is a new product out of the Netherlands that is a combination of a hot tub and boat. You can float around in the luxury of 100-degree water thanks to a wood stove that does the heating. The most expensive version goes for about $21,000 with all of the accessories. Patrick Jones has the details.
