Two George Mason University seniors have invented a bass fire extinguisher that douses flames with ultra low-frequency sound waves.
The 30-60-hz bass waves are so powerful, they create a tiny gap between the oxygen and the fuel, effectively preventing the fire from re-igniting.
The Washington Post spoke with the two engineering majors Seth Robertson and Viet Tran about their innovation, which they hope to apply to larger-scale building, forest, and even space fires in the future.
