Graphite Disc Moves When Light Strikes It

This video is of a graphite disc floating over a magnetic field, which is then being spun by nothing but laser light. Temperature changes where the laser hits the graphite surface, cause changes in the magnetic field allowing it to spin. This is a pretty cool discovery considering it could lead to new technologies like a solar powered turbine. [Mashable]
