A revolutionary magnet ten times stronger than normal could see MRI scanners become hand-held, and electric motors miniaturised. The process, developed at the University of Cambridge in the UK, uses a superconducting material and requires no current.

The development is the work of Dr Tim Coombs, who says a magnet just a few a millimetres across could lift enormous weight.
