Watch Scientists Levitate Objects with Ultrasound Waves [Video]
Here we have a video demonstrating three-dimensinal mid-air acoustic manipulation, or freaking levitating for short. Scientists in Japan have taken a technique to suspend small objects in the air with ultrasound waves and created an array of wave emitters capable of levitating objects in any direction, because science is basically magic.Read on...
