Title: Möbius Maglev Train
Post by: Vegard Stornes Farstad on Mon 2012-05-28 17:08
The MOSEM² Project developed a Möbius-shaped magnetic track with a diameter of 1 meter and a width of 4 cm for a superconducting maglev train. It came about as an extension of the High-Tech Kit which contains a 50 cm long linear magnetic track. There are numerous tracks coming full circle or even loops, but this was the first track in the shape of a Möbius band.

This thread is for discussing the current status and new developments for commercial versions of the kit. See here for more information:
