AGENCY OF RELEVANCE
Trying to suspend objects in mid-air using acoustic
levitation isn’t new, but recently a team of Japanese
engineers have managed to move objects around a
space with sound waves. Sound waves are also being
used cosmetically (non-invasive face lifts) and in
medicine (ultrasound to administer chemotherapy). We
are just starting to understand the power of ultrasound,
but expect Ultrasonic Sciences to roar in 2016.
