The Future Of Flying Hot Wheels On A WipeOut Levitation Track

Levitation Hot Wheels

Those Hot Wheels you collected as a kid aren’t worth a damn.

Sorry to break the news to ya, Ol’ Timer, but when the manufactured rubber hits the road, you’re cruisin’ down memory lane. It’s the future! It’s 2012! Tires aren’t needed for contact with the road anymore! Just watch these flying RC cars race around the track at breakneck speed.

And thanks to the Japan Institute of Science and Technology, every kid is gonna be asking for a controlled quantum levitation set for his or her birthday.

Regarding the clip, JIST had this to say: “Here is a short footage on our recent work on quantum levitation. We were inspired by the game Wipe’out to do our work. With this new technology, we hope to revolutionize the world of motor transport; Maybe in a near future we could assist to a real Wipe’out race.”

Thank you, Science. Or should we say, Domo Arigato?”
