Floating Objects In Mid-Air With Acoustic Levitation (video)

Looks like 2014 will be bringing us one step closer to the flying cars and hoverboards from our favorite sci-fi movies... Check out the short video below on Quantum Levitation and Acoustic Levitation. Pretty Amazing!  
Japanese engineers from The University of Tokyo and the Nagoya Institute of Technology recently unveiled an ambitious device that uses sound waves to move objects through three dimensional space. The machine uses four arrays of speakers to make sound waves that intersect at a focal point that can be moved up, down, left, and right using external controls.
