Ber·noul·li ef·fect

(bĕr-nū'lē),
the decrease in fluid pressure that occurs in converting potential to kinetic energy when motion of the fluid is accelerated, in accordance with Bernoulli law; applied in water aspirators, atomizers, and humidifiers in which a gas is accelerated across the end of a narrow, fluid-filled orifice.

[Jakob Bernoulli, Swiss mathematician, 1654–1705]
In pulmonology, the inverse variation in pressure with gas velocity in tubal air flow.

Daniel, Swiss mathematician, 1700-1782.
Bernoulli effect - the decrease in fluid pressure that occurs in converting potential to kinetic energy when motion of the fluid is accelerated in accordance with Bernoulli law.
Bernoulli law - when friction is negligible, the velocity of flow of a gas or fluid through a tube is inversely related to its pressure against the side of the tube. Synonym(s): Bernoulli principle; Bernoulli theorem
Bernoulli principle - Synonym(s): Bernoulli law

the Bernoulli effect (increasing of water particles axial velocities in the regions within which the water pressure is decreased) (Batchelor, 1991).
The Bernoulli effect also explains how a spin bowler can curve the ball in cricket, or a tennis player can make a ball dip and then kick up after a serve.
Therefore, the study of a non-contact gripper based on the Bernoulli effect seems to be very attractive for this kind of problem.
