Real-life model Wipeout circuit powered by levitation. Real or fake?

New Rising Media: "We're not quantum physicists by any stretch of the imagination, but what we are is keen admirers of truly breathtaking science...especially when it recreates the same sort of racing you'd find in Sony's futuristic racer, Wipeout.

Like any geek, understanding the science behind the phenomena is the very beginning. Much more interesting is taking its principles and applying it to real-life or indeed what we've seen on Star Trek. It's science that makes us re-evaluate exactly how we see the world around us, where our own understanding of gravity, mass, friction and the like are entirely rewritten. But, then again, those racers do look a little CGI-ish, which has begged the question by many Youtube commenters and the odd blog post alike: is the video real?"

very real!
This is no fake.

The science of quantum levitation to support it is definitely real and feasible; but the Wipeout video in particular has people split, because (and I do sort of agree with the doubts on this) the Wipeout racers do look quite CGI-like.

If people were looking to do this, regardless of whether it's a real or fake viral video, the capability is definitely there to pull it off.

+1, My thoughts exactly.

It's fake, unfortunately. There are several anomalies where the effects can be seen to stuff up and pop up infront of things it shouldn't etc.

Go to 1:15 and see the smoke go through the track.
