Video footage shows four speakers arranged around a square platform. The speakers emit supersonic sound waves, undetectable to human ears. They converge with such a powerful vibrating force at the center of the table, that they can lift drops of water and small beads into the air and guide them around like tiny UFOs.
Scientists think the levitation technique could herald a new method of moving objects remotely.
Shoot ! I just posted a new thread on this very same subject in the science& technology forum, and this one just popped up in the ATS live section the second i had posted mine
Can it somehow be merged with this one or how does ATS handle this ''double post'' ?edit on 3-1-2014 by Alundra because: (no reason given)
That is awesome!!!
I wonder would that work in a vacuum??? My first thought says no but I am tired and not up to thinking in depth about it.
However if it could work then this would have applications in space. Forget the robot arm we will sound blast it.... errr
Aww crap I just answered my own question. They cant hear you scream in space. Nevermind.
My other thought on this is I wonder what effect this could have on a smelting process with metals. I wonder if it could get the molecules to line up different. I read years ago that when aluminum is smelted in Zero G it has a effect of strengthening the metal.
I know this isn't Zero G but I still wonder if it would have a similar effect.
It is something new now lets see what kind of practical application it can have.
