Time: Vietnamese Engineering Student Extinguishes Fire With Sound

posted by Jason Fong

fireEngineering students Viet Tran and Seth Robertson have recently invented a fire extinguisher that can put out blazes by using sound waves, according to Time Magazine. What started out as a senior research product has developed into a working device with much practical use.

Tran cited several potential uses for the device, which included “In the kitchen, as part of a countertop, and in drones, to fly over areas which aren’t safe for human inhabitation”.

Although this pair of George Mason University students haven’t fully developed this technology, they have high hopes for the future, as they hope to soon seek a patent.

To view the pair’s technology in action, see the video below. To learn more about the theory behind it, read Time Magazine.

    RE: Vietnamese engineering student extinguishes fire with sound: One co-inventor is Asian-American and the other is African-American. Please do not erase other people of color who are not Asian-American.
