We Live In The Future
A team of physicists at the University of Dundee have created a real-life sonic screwdriver - yes, I’m serious.
The Doctor’s trusty tool was replicated using ultrasound energy capable of manipulating an object away from itself and, using a component of momentum which exerts torque on the object, a helix-shaped vortex beam then causes the item to rotate.
Researchers hope to use this breakthrough in ultrasound technology for future endeavors regarding non-invasive surgery, but we’re just hoping they figured out how to make it work on wood.
