More "Sonic Screwdriver" developments.

Acoustic 'tractor fields' such as would allow a sonic screwdriver or lock pick are now being worked on for manipulating cells for bioprinting. They're calling the concept "acoustic tweezers."

Really, of all of the sci-fi devices I never thought would start entering reality, the Doctor's screwdriver, especially in its more recent omni-tool version, was not one of them.

We rock, really.
