Electrogravitational fields are much like electromagnets, only they manipulate the effects of gravity within a small space around them. Commonly used on hovercraft and spacecraft for atmospheric maneuvering, this technology can occasionally find more esoteric uses.

Some life forms, such as the Blotean slugs, have developed natural electrograv fields that enable them to lift and manipulate small items or even themselves.
