Speaker Fire Extinguisher

George Mason University students Viet Tran and Seth Robertson spent $600 building a prototype (patent pending), speaker-like canister that directs low-frequency waves to a specific point, paired with a 20-pound, over-the-shoulder pack to generate the said waves. Tran says: “But it’s low-frequency sounds – like the thumping bass in hip-hop that works…rappers like 50 Cent could probably douse a fire, and that hip-hop celebrity endorsements might be just the [golden] ticket.” Continue reading for the video and more information.

Tran adds: “But eventually I’d like to see this applied to, maybe, swarm robotics, where they would be attached to a drone and that would be applied to forest fires or even building fires where you wouldn’t want to sacrifice human life.”
