Superconductors

I just realized last night that we are looking in the wrong place for room temperature superconductors. The modes of superconduction we have found so far are:
Very low temperature - very low pressure Niobuim-Titanium
low temperature - low pressure Ceramic

We are now exploring room temerature and low pressure to find new superconductors. After analyzing why materials superconduct, I dought we will find any usefull room temperature-low pressure superconductors. But We have not even explored the possibility of high temperature-high pressure superconductors, which should also occur. Another place where superconduction should occur, is in high temperature plazma's confined in a magnetic field. These types of superconductors should be easier to deal with, than low temperature ones. Only time will tell.
