Magnets naturally levitate above superconductors. The magnet's magnetic field can't penetrate the superconductor, causing it to float almost magically above. See this phenomenon at work in an exclusive Scientific American video.

And read more about superconductors and their connection to unified theories of physics in the January 2013 issue of Scientific American: http://goo.gl/IGpZ7
