Researchers from the University of St. Andrews in Scotland have created what they call “incredible levitation effects” by manipulating a natural law known as the Casimir force, which usually causes objects to stick together.

In the November 23rd Daily Telegraph, Roger Highfield reports that Ulf Leonhardt and Thomas Philbin hope to start by creating tiny machines with moving parts that levitate. If this works, they will try to move on to levitating larger objects, including people.
