The idea of using optical beams to attract objects has long been a dream of scientists and the public alike. Over the years, a number of proposals have attempted to bring this concept to life. Here we review the most recent progress in this emerging field, including new concepts for manipulating small objects using optically induced 'negative forces', achieved by tailoring the properties of the electromagnetic field, the environment or the particles themselves.
