Superconductivity

Source: motherboard.tv

Superconductivity is a property that a metal can acquire where it loses all of its electric resistance and becomes nearly 100-percent efficient. It’s useful is making awesome magnets, in MRI machines and microscopes, and, in the future, it’ll maybe be used in everything from mag-lev trains to electrical transmission. It’s one of the most immediate and practical aspects of quantum mechanics.
