The Surf Mag (October 6, 2011). Google translation below.
Discover and test a futuristic skateboard: he levitates a few inches of soil above magnetic rails, and can carry people over 100 kg.
As part of the Festival of Science at the University Paris Diderot, the Department of Physics of this university for the first time the Surf Mag: skate a superconductor.
Witness the power of quantum properties of superconductors, discovered exactly 100 years ago! A superconductor conducts electricity perfectly, but in addition, it expels magnetic fields. Thus, pushing the magnetic field of the magnets, a superconductor can levitate!
A spectacular demonstration
Vincent Berger, President of the Paris Diderot University will conduct the first test flight of the prototype - developed and designed in the laboratory materials and quantum phenomena of the university - and testify to the unique sensations of skiing skateboarding provides.
With the Surf Mag, the carpet is no longer a tale of Arabian Nights. It becomes reality, the reality of a new era of our urban transport.
