Check Out This Fire Extinguisher That Uses Sound Waves To Put Out Flames

Apr 1, 2015
You've heard of fighting fire with fire, but what about fighting fire with sound? Viet Tran and Seth Robertson, two graduating electrical engineering majors at George Mason University, have built something quite fascinating. The device they've created is able to douse fires using a low-frequency sound.

Basing their project on the fact that sound is able to physically impact objects, Tran and Robertson came up with a concept that could potentially help in emergency situations and minimize any risk of endangerment. The students have a preliminary patent on the product and plan to expand on the idea as much as possible.
