Sometimes a toffee sounds really good–not just the suggestion of it, but the actual toffee itself. That’s according to a study that found altering the pitch and type of instruments used in an accompanying soundtrack can modify the way food tastes.
What do shingleback lizards, budgerigars and Mexican grey wolves all have in common? All these animals are monogamous: they generally mate with a partner for a substantial period of time, in many cases to raise offspring together.
Nature Video finds out how to levitate objects using sound waves. Scientists can float objects in mid-air, using just the power of sound. Now, using ultrasonic speakers, they can levitate things with more control than ever before, moving small objects in three dimensions even with the whole array turned upside down. They have also developed virtual ‘holograms’ to visualise how the shapes made by the sound waves can ‘grab’ objects.This article was reproduced with permission and was first published on Oct 27, 2015.
