On today's show, we discuss Japan's newest superconductor maglev train, AMC and Paramount's unlimited "Interstellar" ticket, and nanosculptures that can only be viewed with an electron microscope.
We can't believe these tiny sculptures (created by artist Jonty Hurwitz) are thinner than the width of a human hair and relatively detailed for their size. If you wanted to see them, though, you'd need to have an electron microscope handy.
Trust us: If hoverboards were as real as this one from a mysterious company called HUVr, the world really would be changed forever. Or at the very least, it would be way more fun.
Researchers at UT Arlington have designed a microscopic windmill which, en masse, could be used to power mobile electronics.
