This article explains it:
New Scientist TV: Superconducting disc locked in upside-down levitation

If i understand it correctly, the 'floating' object has an attractive magnetic core, but is 'painted' with a superconductor that is repelled by the magnetic platform the guy is holding. Small holes are present in the 'paint', meaning a small magnetic attraction can reach the core.

Therefore, whilst the 'paint' rejects the magnetic platform, the object's core can still be attracted to the platform, meaning the object is repelled and attracted at the same time, suspending it in a perfect balance (that is strong enough to resist gravity).

Fuckin' magnets, man...

I can't find the post to quote it, but to whoever posted the BBC Horizon doco "What Time Is It?" (Retitled "Do You Know What Time It Is?" when rebroadcast on Discovery in the US): I love that. It's in its full version in vimeo and I used a clever little program to download it. I love Dr Cox, he's like a rockstar to me. I could list the other physicists that are rockstars to me, but the list would get very, very long.

Anyway, watching that prompts me to ponder the nature of time. Einstein said once, "We travel through time at the speed of light." Which makes sense, we can only see things as quickly as it takes for light to enter our eyes and then for those signals to be interpreted in the brain. So, technically, we're always living a fraction of a second in the past. But on the other hand, as one travels through space at the speed of light, time slows down to where it almost stops. And that sort of paradox fascinates me.

Ocean Sky on Vimeo

I didn't listen to this with speakers, so apologies if the music sucks, but if I were able to look up at the night sky and see this, well, I dunno what I'd do. this is just incredible.
