Scientists Levitate Objects Using Ultrasound Waves

 |  |  |  |  January 5, 2014

Behold witchcraft! Some crazy mages who call themselves scientists are making stuff levitate using ultrasound waves. Check out the video below. It demonstrates three-dimensional, mid-air acoustic manipulation, aka levitation. Aka witchcraft!
Scientists in Japan are using this technique to suspend small objects in the air with ultrasound waves and they have created an array of wave emitters capable of levitating objects in any direction. Why do these wizards boast of their magic so openly, unafraid of burning at the stake? I have watched the video. I know magic when I see it! I am holding my pitchfork right now!

Seriously, this video just makes my brain hurt. It is amazing. Check out all of the details on their website. This amazing science is the work of professors Yoichi Ochiai, Takayuki Hoshi, and Jun Rekimoto. They have powerful magics indeed.
