Levitating Chinese vehicles explained

  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.

    1. My son sent me the link and I watched it not knowing what to expect. Caught me completely by surprise. Even knowing the explanation, it still looks weird.

      1. It does. I think because we are used to heavier cars. Even though this isn’t an everyday occurrence, we still see bang-em-ups in movies, tv, and the news. The rarely flip around like that because US cars are, typically, much heavier.

  2. 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! 😕

  3. 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.

... and that's my two cents
