Perhaps somethig along these lines could lead to perfect ceramic glazing.

Can you imagine this technologies implications towards designers?

This can potentially make the physical world behave as the digital one.

The hard part is getting the glazing to stick while all that pesky nitrogen boils off,
but I am sure shapeways is already looking for room-temperature superconductors
to improve their production process. Very Happy

Same can be done with enough bismuth and a neo magnet http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bwddgcADSdY, its just a matter of getting the relationships between the two right for the weight involved Cool Rolling Eyes

Yes, but that is no ceramic material, unlike the common high-tc stuff.
With a strong enough magnet, you can even levitate frogs
but who would want to glaze the little guys ? Shocked

That levitating frogs is really old stuff, iirc done by a university in the Netherlands with a 5T electromagnet... anywhichway something is levitated, the heat needed for glazing ceramics will destroy the levitation. If using magnets they will surpass their curie temperature and become useless lumps of stuff, if at room temperature a superconductor will stop superconducting and I won't mention what would happen to lil froggy Confused

It would be cool though to have a 3D printed model suspended whilst being sprayed with glaze and that model then fired whilst still suspended.
