A device capable of exerting a remote force upon material objects. A repulsor beam pushes things away, while its opposite, the antirepulsor or tractor, pulls them closer. Power is consumed or produced corresponding to the kinetic energy added or removed from the target. The mass and density of a target object will affect how quickly a repulsor beam of a given power moves it.
  A repulsor suspending something in the air requires no additional energy beyond efficiency losses, since it is not doing any work against gravity.
  By carefully tuning (anti)repulsor fields, it is possible to simulate (zero-)gravity in an enclosed space by affecting equally the structures of objects within it.
