Hoverboards are real, right now, not just in Back To The Future. Today Arx Pax showed off version 2 of its magnetic levitation Hendo Hoverboard that glides above copper flooring.
My most probably over-simplistic and over-generalization is that the Zeno Effect is a hypothesis of physics along the same lines as Schrödinger’s Cat, and the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle, whereby the act of observing an experiment effects its outcome. Here’s a short video explaining the Schrödinger’s Cat experiment and below that, is the Zeno Effect explained
‘Zeno effect’ verified: Atoms won’t move while you watch
One of the oddest predictions of quantum theory – that a system can’t change while you’re watching it – has been confirmed in an experiment by Cornell physicists. Their work opens the door to a fundamentally new method to control and manipulate the quantum states of atoms and could lead to new kinds of sensors.
