Sonic Technology

A clever chap here is working on a functional tractor beam. While the article begins by trumpeting how this is just like the thing the Enterprise uses to shift asteroids around, it's really not. It's a micro-scale acoustic beam, so it works only in an atmosphere or fluid medium. However, as outlined, it has enormous potential for medical use.

He's also working on a sonic screwdriver.

Also, here are some Star Trek cakes. Note to the original compiler: the final cake is clearly a work in progress, not an "epic fail." Prat.
