I've been hearing superconductors is the future of technology and what not, but then i questioned what the actual uses of superconductors in modern day life. I know that its used in MRI machines but what else?

Computers that use very little power (and generate little heat).
Magnetic confinement fusion reactor with superconducting coils.
magnetic levitation
Sensitive magnetic probes

I'm sure the most amazing uses for them haven't been invented yet.
