    Researchers at the Japan Institute of Science and Technology have build a miniature Wipeout track using high temperature superconductors and quantum levitation.

    Right now this is fundamental research, but in the future large scale transportation systems could be build with technology akin to this.

    Very cool (pun intended!) stuff! :)
