Techo: Not Quite 3D

Here's a fascinating article about a new form of electron movement.
It's not something that you can try out on your kitchen table though!

"Working with one of the purest semiconductor materials ever made, they discovered the quasi-three-dimensional electron crystal in a device cooled at ultra-low temperatures roughly 100 times colder than intergalactic space. The material was then exposed to the most powerful continuous magnetic fields generated on Earth."
