An American acoustics engineer - Tom Danley, has been working with colleagues in a company called Intersonics, on research which has led to Acoustic Levitation and Positioning Devices, which have been tested by NASA.
They filed a U.S. patent in 1991 stating:
"An acoustic levitator includes a pair of opposed sound sources which have interfering sound waves producing acoustic energy wells in which an object can be levitated. The phase of one sound source may be changed relative to the other in order to move the object along an axis between the sound sources."

This is one of my favorite topics.
Heres a website I found a while back, which I have linked to in earlier discussions of sonic lev. Its no where near as exciting as this new video of the levitation chamber this guy has.

A different acoustic weapon is the high power acoustic phased array of 36 horns which can focus the acoustic output at the target. The high power noise created within the target can incapacitate humans from a standoff range. The system can be mounted on a tactical vehicle, and radiate a narrow, high power steerable acoustic beam, disorientating humans. Both horizontal and vertical beams can be formed simultaneously to create a point effect within buildings.
The above is a snippet from this web page about less than lethal / moderate lethality weapons. Have a read, its scary stuff.
Oh and a wise man wouldn't bet on acoustic weapons being designed to bring down buildings...Ask the Russians about those...
(I'll dig about for the info to post here...)

Would you be able to bring down buildings with that if you find the building frequency?
Thanks for the info!

Nazi engineers created sound weapons that were capable of causing death at 100 meters but were abandoned because of their short range. They were essentially huge loudspeakers that were powered by alternating explosions of gases.
The HAARP fact sheet states that "most of the energy of the high-power beam would be emitted upward rather than toward the horizon." Later on, however, the fact sheet notes that care will have to be taken "to reduce the percentage of time large signal levels would be transmitted toward large cities." The closest large cities are Fairbanks and Anchorage.
Balcomb and several volunteers managed to guide 10 of the animals back into the water. But six whales and the dolphin died. Last winter, a government investigation found that the whales had suffered severe ear trauma that damaged their navigational systems; the cause, the report said, was a test of a Navy sonar system in the waters off the Bahamas. The finding has added fuel to a long'standing dispute over the Navy's next-generation sonar technology -- a system that environmentalists say poses grave risks to marine mammals.

Yep, and it is old news, 1991 to be exact. This should reopen that solar warden thread.
