Would you really think that a sound directed to "appear" close by your senses, would not throw off your balance if you relied on feel and hearing to get around?

People, PLEASE read the description of the technology from the people that built it.
There are no microwaves or radio waves at all. It is SOUND. In fact it is the manipulation of the interaction between hypersonic oscillations to produce lower frequency highly directional audible sound. The end result is absolutely no different than having a regular speaker pointed at your head.
This will not cause cancer. It is not contained within your head. It is just focused sound waves so only someone standing in the "beam" can hear them.
