Prophets of Science Fiction (Exhibit A: Levitation via Quantum Locking)

Like many prophets, science fiction authors have been both spectacularly wrong and spectacularly right at times. SF Signal shared this video trailer for a new series on science fiction authors as prophets of future science which explores those visionaries who got things right (perhaps, like some of ancient Israel’s prophets, because they actually inspired people to head in the direction they “predicted”?)

There are plenty of examples of science fiction becoming science fact around, but let me just share one which was shared recently on IO9: Quantum locking – which accomplishes a form of levitation (watch this video – you will be impressed!):
