How to bend waves to arrive at the right place

Under certain circumstances, a wave can split into several paths, reaching some places with high intensity, while avoiding others almost completely.

The core idea of this new approach is to send a wave signal exclusively along one single pre-selected branch, such that the wave is hardly noticeable anywhere else.
