Check this out. Have you heard?

Superconductivity - a quantum phenomenon in which metals below a certain temperature develop flow of current with no loss or resistance - is one of the most exciting problems in physics, which has resulted in investments worldwide of enormous brain power and resources since its discovery a little over a century ago. Many prominent theorists, Nobel laureates among them, have proposed theories for new classes of superconducting materials discovered several decades later, followed by teams of experimentalists working furiously to provide solid evidence for these theories. More than 100,000 research papers have been published on the new materials.

Aside from some neat medical imaging stuff, what kind of tech might become possible with this discovery? The article doesn't delve much into that.

If you want to garner public relations for research, you have to tell people what cool new toys they might get.
