Falling Up: On the Road to Flying Cars
Smart people at CERN's Antihydrogen Laser Physics Apparatus (ALPHA) have trapped antihydrogen for 1,000 seconds. This may not sound like a big deal, but it means that the world may soon know whether antimatter falls up or down. Assuming antimatter falls up, the folks at DVICE see the potential for hoverboards from these discoveries. The folks at Inhabitat make the jump to zero-emissions flying cars. I will not be so bold as to predict anything, but flying cars would be pretty cool.
