Spoons and forks may soon be obsolete as scientists have found a way to levitate food directly into our mouths. 

  • High-frequency sound waves can be tuned to make food float, researchers found.
  • Floating food actually tastes sweeter, scientists at the University of Sussex found.
  • The team showed they can move food as well, transporting it above a conveyor belt like weightless sushi.
  • But for now the food must not be bigger than a pea.

  • This could come in handy when trying to persuade kids to eat their greens or take bitter medicine.
  • This could lead to restaurants where people see the food passing in front of them and bite down when something they fancy comes into view.
