Researchers at France’s Universite Paris Diderot have developed a supercooled, quantum hoverboard that actually levitates. Utilizing “liquid nitrogen, the team turn the platform super-cold, creating an electromagnetic field that is expelled from the inside of the board.” Video after the break.

It’s not quantum locking — the skateboard is too big to mimic that little super-cooled disc — but it provides enough outward magnetic force to float above a rail of permanent magnets.
