Controlled Quantum Levitation on a Wipe'Out Track - YouTube

Would make a great toy if you could figure out a safe way of handling liquid nitrogen.

From the name I thought they would crash on camera. Cool gimmick nonetheless.

Now at Toys 'R' Us for only $19.95 million (liquid nitrogen refills sold separately).

I hoped it would have been the music that was "Wipeout."
