Three-dimensional Mid-air Acoustic Manipulation by Ultrasonic Phased Arrays

I was wondering as well, but I remember this one thread from a year or two ago that described what a transapient could do with chaos management and some lasers. SI:3-level transapients doing the 'thundering godly voice' act by shooting correctly-timed lasers into a planetary atmosphere. Accuracy with that kind of sophistication with Acoustic Phased Arrays might yield some impressive results.

Briefly I thought of removing dust or just moving stuff around in freefall environments. But if there's something in the way of the speakers, it's not likely to work. Perhaps this could be a novelty device used for moving small household items... Or precision work in areas where physical contact is not desired? (Not quite sure about that one.) What about potential applications in fluids? Or just great displays of art made with sound waves. Those magnetically-levitated globes were popular. I wonder if you could get something like that, but on a smaller scale? Must cost an awful lot to keep the sound up, though.
