Superconductivity

It's not a new discovery really, and it isn't really practical until a room temperature superconductor is found, or you happen to be on a very very cold planet... I suppose you could have floating cars, trains, very low resistance electric motors. There probably hasn't been much thought put into it due to the limitations of most superconducting materials, namely, they require very cold temperatures, even very "warm" temperature superconductors still need to be at like, -200 degrees Fahrenheit.

Oh, and it's different from normal magnetic levitation because this method doesn't require contant current flow to maintain the repeling effect, so you could travel at very high speeds with very little energy input, well, if it wasn't for all known superconductors to require super cold temperatures like I mentioned above.
