Quantum levitation using superconducting magnets.

This video depicts a Wipeout model craft making its way around a Wipeout track using the repulsion betwixt supercooled superconducting magnets in the craft and electromagnets in the track that repel each other due to each having the same magnetic poles. This is how a real 430 kilometre an hour magnetic levitation train works, the track and the train repel each other and it floats above it. it would require massive amounts of energy to have a real F5000 Anti Gravity racing league, but this is pretty cool. The craft in the game Wipeout 2097 where floating about 4-6 feet above the track and I do not know how much energy it would require to have that working in real life, but if we invented anti-gravity, then grass would grow on our roads and we would have quieter neighbourhoods.
