Re: Could sonic showers actually work?

Also, I should point out that the Zero Gravity Toilet Instructions in 2001: A Space Odyssey contain references to a 'pure' sonic shower (one that doesn't use water at all) as well. The bathroom that Dr. Floyd is about to enter, has such a sonic shower, and also a sink that cleans your hands using only sound waves.

So don't blame Trek for getting the science wrong, blame Stanley Kubrick.
