Suspended by sound | 17.09.2015

 


Researchers at the University of São Paulo (USP) have developed a device capable of levitating objects using sound. Compared to previous levitators, the newly developed allows greater control of particles. See in the video produced by Revista FAPESP’s team how this technology can facilitate the manipulation of dangerous materials or sensitive chemical substances, such as compounds used in drug manufacture.
