Levitating Chinese vehicles explained

This one certainly had me scratching my head when I first saw it. What on earth could be happening? I first thought about exploding manhole covers and my best guess was bizarre crosswinds funneling between tall buildings. Nope. Not even close. Even knowing the cause, I don’t understand how it lifted the cars the way it did.

  1. I thought it was obvious even not being able to see the cable in the video. By the way the three vehicles reacted, you could tell something tripped them up. I think what you may be wondering is how the first vehicle popped up so high in the back. Remember, actions have an equal and opposite reaction… that van was going pretty fast. Then suddenly it was stopped in it’s tracks and with no give at all. So that forward momentum had to go somewhere, so it bounced back. With the engine being in the front and weighing more, it didn’t go as high as the rear of the van. Also, these vehicles weigh much less than US vehicles which would have allowed it to bounce as high as it did. I didn’t hear about this video until last night. Watched it a few times before I found out what it was, but I thought it was clear they were caught up by something we just couldn’t see.

  2. I just saw this on the CBC news. Otherwise, I would have thought it was a hoax. So interesting!

  3. Saw this on the news last night also. I’m of the same frame of mind as ‘Still the Lucky Few’, don’t think I would have figured that one out and just brushed it off as another video hoax! 😕

  4. Haha, just like inception. Stupid movie, btw.

  5. One of a number of bizarre videos that have popped up out of China in recent months. My takeaway from all these videos is how far the consumer society has reached in recent years in China, seemingly no longer is China’ population (urban population anyway ) living a life of abject poverty. In rural areas I suppose it’s very different, just as it is in the U. S. deep South.
