If you check you the other related vids, you find some cool stuff: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1zwBoBbHR4I&feature=related
They should make an entire roller-coaster.

This is pretty much the coolest thing ever.
Why don't we have hover cars yet?
Screw hover cars, I want one of these:

Holy shit, good find.
I wonder if this is possible to incorporate this into an idea for transportation. Sounds like it would be expensive.
Yo, if you dropped like a hundred feet from one of these platforms to another on that hoverboard, would it hit the ground or stop at the fixed distance?

Also, they called this prototype "The MacFly". Which is even cooler.
When I see videos like this, I think I obviously chose the wrong career... :(
Edit : Bighead, I can't answer your question but they say something interesting in the article. The rail is 5 meters long but they explain that the hoverboard could actually continue levitating for a while after the end of the rail.

I've heard about maglev trains in Japan, nice to see how does it work in such a pure form.
It'd be expensive at the beginning but then, it's like, almost free.
ps2.I want one too, thanks God only 4years left to 2015.
