Submission + - Quantum Fluid Defies Gravity (wired.com) 1

BitHive writes: Researchers have discovered a new type of non-Newtonian fluid which defies gravity when exposed to sound waves. They have a spooky demonstration of the liquid, which has yet to be named, climbing up and out of a speaker resonating in the sub-audible 30kHz range. Does this discovery pave the way for floating automobile tires that never wear out, or perhaps a sequel to Flubber?
