Default Is The Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver for Real?

http://www.wired.com/geekdad/2012/04...tories+2%29%29

Quote: "A team of research physicists at the University of Dundee in Scotland have created an ultrasound array that can effectively be used as a sonic screwdriver, right out of Doctor Who. The Dundee researchers were able to lift and spin a free-floating 10cm diameter rubber disk with an ultrasound beam."

I think I would wait til that Tricorder was a little more lightweight...................I'm thinking some of that classic 23rd Century design that Dax liked so much.
