Electromagnetic induction. Check. Levitation. Check. Say what ?!

Did you hear of MagLev? Of course you did. Levitation through direct magnetic interaction or via electromagnetic induction is very possible. Veritasium shows in the video above how an Aluminium plate can be hovered over a coil where a 8000 Amps current is flowing.

The most interesting part is that the place is getting very hot and, as you will see, the light bulbs will emit light due to the same phenomenon. So, there you have it: levitation, barbecue and light.
