Kim Pimmel combined everyday soap bubbles with exotic ferrofluid liquid to create an eerie tale, using macro lenses and time lapse techniques. Black ferrofluid and dye race through bubble structures, drawn through by the invisible forces of capillary action and magnetism.

ZeroN – Levitated Interaction Element

Under - Technology

We have seen the Quantum Levitation where quantum superconductors were locked in a magnetic field. Here comes ZeroN – a physical and digital interaction element that floats and moves in space by computer-controlled magnetic levitation. ZeroN takes the whole concept to a new level where materials could defy gravity, suspended in mid-air with full control of their movement.

Quantum Levitation

With the theme “Knowledge that Works: From Theory to Practice,” the 2011 ASTC Annual Conference (October 15-18) featured more than 100 sessions which highlighted how science centers and museums are putting new ideas to practical use to serve their communities. Tel-Aviv University demonstrated quantum superconductors locked in a magnetic field by suspending a superconducting disc above or below a set of permanent magnets. The magnetic field is locked inside the superconductor; a phenomenon called ‘Quantum Trapping’.
