Putting Out Fire With Sound
Now we can put out fire with sound. Bass frequencies to be specific.
In the video below we can see the new way bass can stops fires, invented by two engineering students from George Mason University, Seth Robertson and Viet Tran who are senior engineering students at the University.
In the future Seth and Viet plan to make a large scale version that can be mounted on drones, to help stop forest fires. Video courtesy of George Mason University.
