Doctor Who’s Sonic Screwdriver has come one step closer to reality as a new prototype built by physicists at the University of Dundee, can manipulate objects, lifting, moving and turning them using sound waves.
The team behind the device are hoping that the findings can be used by the medical community to better enable surgeons to develop new surgical techniques and treat a range of conditions without the need to cut the patient open.
Dr MacDonald added: ‘Like Doctor Who’s own device, our sonic screwdriver is capable of much more than just spinning things around.’
