Levitating Medicine With Sound
So some clever guys over at the US Department of Energy‘s Argonne Laboratory are using acoustic levitation to turn off the gravity on medicine. Why might they be doing this? Well, it turns out there are two types of medicine doctors are looking for: amorphous, without constant form, and crystalline, with a rigid atomic structure. The amorphous type is processed much more efficiently in the body because of its solubility, and now technology is making amorphous storage a reality. Also, it looks so alien.
