levitation, scientists have achieved levitation with small animals, are we next?

Levitation is something I personally find fascinating, it has always been one of the technologies that has been touted as "in the future"

Scientists & researches at the Northwestern Polytechnical University in Xi'an, China have successfully levitated ants, beetles, spiders, ladybugs, bees, tadpoles and fish.

some of these were levitated to a third of an inch into midair,

The technology used was an Ultrasound emitter, producing 20-millimeter wavelength sounds, that in theory - and now in practice, should be able to levitate objects up to half that wavelength.

the main focus for the research is to discover ways to develop alloys to pharmaceuticals  without containers, enabling much easier manufacturing of materials that could react with containers or are too corrosive.


how long will it be until it becomes commonplace? and better yet how long till it works on people?

I'm a professional Geek, and also in my own time, I am likely to write about all manner of things on this blog.
Of late I haven't updated this place much, but I need to do some revamping and dust off the cobwebs a bit. so thats what I'll do. going to aim for a minimum of three times a week updated here to begin, then perhaps head towards every day!


Who knows! 


but for now I hope you enjoy what you read, and that I aid the constant novelty and stimulus to your brain that the internet provides us all, in a way nothing else can!


I am likely to comment on everything here, but my current topics of choice are
