Okay, maybe not exactly in a form we can readily take over to a friend's house, but still it's pretty sweet. Now if only someone could find a way to box this puppy up and mass market it...

Where'd I put my liquid nitrogen... whistle

Nice CGI work there, but yeah, the part where the "levitating" cars suddenly flip sideways kind of ruins the illusion.

I'm pretty sure that's real.

EDIT: Ok, I guess it's not real, though the science behind it certainly is. I think it would be possible to create a similar rig IRL.

I'm not convinced that this isn't real based on what I've seen and read about quantum levitation. But I'm nothing close to a physicist.

The technology is nowhere near this advanced or smooth. It's CGI.I don't need to be a physicist to know that.

This is state of the art:

Check. I saw that second video but didn't look at the date.

Edit: Just to cement my gullibility and shame:
