The Levitate project is investigating a radical new way of interacting with data by using levitating particles to create a mid-air display. Users will be able see, hear and feel objects that levitate in front of them, without having to wear any other device.

The following images show our early acoustic levitation prototypes. The image on the right shows four small objects being levitated.
