A team of scientists from the UK and Spain has developed a system that can move objects and keep them in the air, as in the science fiction films Star Trek and Star Wars. True, so far only a light polystyrene ball with a diameter of 4 mm can be manipulated. The levitation effect was achieved using 64 microdynamics with a power of nine watts, reproducing high-intensity sound waves. The speakers generate sound at a frequency of 40 KHz (a normal person hears sound at a frequency of up to 20 KHz). The system creates complex 3D acoustic waves acting on the object from all sides, which helps to hold and move the object in the air without direct contact with them. In their research, scientists plan to get positive results with the levitation of heavier objects. In the future, the acoustic system may find application in medicine for various operations (extracting stones from the kidneys, for example) and increasing the solubility of drugs.
