Fighting Fire….with Sound?

April 1, 2015 by Total Fire and Safety

Imagine a fire extinguisher that sprays nothing….but sound. Could it really fight fires?

Two engineering students, Viet Tran and Seth Robertson from George Mason University, were recently in the news for creating a blaze battler that uses sound to extinguish fires.

Besides fighting a stovetop kitchen fire without creating a mess, an even better application that they envision would be tackling forest fires with the help of swarm robotics, or drones.  The two inventors hold a preliminary patent application for their invention. Maybe one day we’ll be offering “sound extinguishers” at Total Fire & Safety!
