Quantum Levitation  
Very impressive, but unfortunately just a toy.

Might be useful in interstellar space.

Steam engine was a toy for ancient Greeks.

1) What would you do with that stickiness in interstellar space?
There is almost no gravitation forces there, so levitation is not a problem anyway.

2) Steam engine become useful ~2000 years after Greeks played with it.
Even if extracting practical results from that levitation toy would take only 100 years - it's not practical to me anyway.

Sure, no practical use, most probably.
