Gravity manipulated

i don't often post from work but this is the most amazing thing i've read in weeks.

artificial gravity! think of electro-magnets. control the current, control the magnetism. most of the technogidgets you can poke a stick at these days are using this principle somewhere along the chain.
these guys have done the analogous (and much "£%$ harder) equivalent with gravity.

holy crap.

so cool.

wish i was a physicist.

i really am a geek.

From the article:

Under certain special conditions the effect is much larger than expected from general relativity and could help physicists to make a significant step towards the long-sought-after quantum theory of gravity.

Screw the GUT. I want a personal gravity lens!
