Obviously has its limitations, but pretty cool.  Seen at :

It levitates just an inch off the ground and only then over non-ferrous metallic surfaces like aluminum, but it’s stable enough to support a grown man once he’s gotten his bearings. In theory, says the designer, the technology could be used to levitate whole buildings in earthquake zones to protect them when a temblor strikes. But he needed a proof of concept to grab Americans’ (i.e. potential investors’) attention before he started working on that, so naturally he focused on pop-culture detritus. The man knows his audience. Ingenious.
