Super Robot Has Powers of Levitation

This robot hasn't levitated any humans yet (especially not pictured Days of Our Lives star Deidre Hall), but it looks like the sky may be the limit with the Robo-Air Jet System.

Developed by Aaron Becker and Robert Sandheinrich at the University of Illinois, Urbana, the Robo-Air Jet System "can manipulate objects in three dimensions through obstacle courses, toss things, hold up multiple objects, weigh objects, and even peel onions".

Check out the two minute video (it just gets better and better, particularly at 1:04, beginning with the obstacle course, then onto the levitating apple and onion peeler).
