Dundee scientists create real-life tractor beam
Researchers at Dundee University – working in collaboration with colleagues at Southampton University and Illinois Wesleyan University – used 
ultrasound to exert force behind an object and pull it towards the energy source.

The breakthrough has been branded a “functioning acoustic tractor beam” which could prove a major benefit in the treatment of tumours.

Dr Christine Demore, of the Institute for Medical Science and Technology (Imsat) at Dundee, said: “This is the first time anyone has demonstrated a working acoustic tractor beam and the first time such a beam has been used to move anything bigger than microscopic targets.

To bad there is no way to make a tiny freeze dry lazier and do a tiny bit at a time, suction it as you go. I always thought it might work if it was small enough so you could be very close without damaging the tissue around it tumor. Something like that, small bit at a time.
