Acoustic levitation, a method of using sound waves to suspend small particles, is one of coolest phenomenons in science.
Japanese scientists Yoichi Ochiai, Jun Rekimoto and Takayuki Hoshi have released footage of their new series of acoustic levitation experiments that demonstrate the power of noise.
The clip provides a quick and simple overview of the team’s work before getting into some mind-bending levitation experiments with small items like nails, bolts, wood pieces and even drops of liquid. It’s a neat look at a wonder that fascinates both scientists and geeks alike.
