pointless in practical way. For theory it ok, but I don't see the usage for this in practice

You don't see it, But maybe someone else does.

It's cool for science, but in practice I don't see how it is substantial. It's fascinating though, and it might end up becoming something.


"Liberterianism is a mental disease. A national health crisis and a threat to the future of this country...Worse than the threat from terrorism, asteroids, disease and yes global warming.
It is mindless anti-government idiocy. If it isn't turned back I predict the end of this country as a world power. Simply put the need to educate our entire population like any sane country is sen as wrong by the cult that practice this foolish idiocy. So is simple workers rights, child labor and every other sane policy of the modern world."

Gunpowder seemed in impractical beyond entertainment, But then it was used for greater purposes like warfare.

Nice, except... haven't they been doing this for decades?

“This method of moving levitated objects could have a wide range of possible applications,” says Foresti. The process of controlled movement can run in parallel with several objects, making it interesting for industrial applications.

 

For example, some biological and chemical experiments require particles or droplets of source material to be initially processed and then analyzed. With this technique, researchers can mix tiny amounts of substances and liquids in a step by step manner without any chemical changes arising due to contact with a surface.


What difference does it make?

Didn't some dude create an acoustic black hole a while ago?

Those rocks float because they're made of super conducting materials.

I'm sure the artist really thought about the physics there..
