Anti-Gravity Race Track

Inspired by the video game WipeOut, researchers at the Japan Institute of Science and Technology incorporated quantum levitation into a miniature race track.

Real or Fake? Here are some clues: a) Magnetic field for levitation is provided by superconductors (green conduits on diagram) yet there is no evidence of cooling on the track. b) The forward propulsion is supposedly provided by the Lorentz force. This requires a current to pass through the vehicles laterally and it is implied that it is supplied by electrodes on the track. This requires the current to leap out of the electrodes on the track, into the vehicles and back down again when there is clearly no electrical link between the two. c) Lateral movement is possible by cleverly switching the currents inside the superconducting conduits, but would be jerky and most importantly would affect both vehicles at the same time meaning the overtaking you see at around 1:05 would not be possible. d) Liquid nitrogen is not stored in 12g co2 cartridges. e) According to the Google, there is a "Japan ADVANCED Institute of Science and Technology" but not a "Japan Institute of Science and Technology". f) The rendered ships don't look the same as the ones they are holding at the start. g) © Copyright of the video belongs to Sony. (Wipeout is a series of futuristic anti-gravity racing games developed by Sony.) Wiki
