BASS-IC Fire prevention in the kitchen or complete protection in the home…
This may sound space-aged, like something you’d find in George Jetson’s floating house, or a page out of popular mechanics, but students at George Mason University invented a sound system that works as a fire extinguisher.
The bass pitch , uses sound waves to “pinch” oxygen molecules, and in turn shuts off the energy supply to the fire.
Now imagine the system in your range hood, or better yet, in the same speaker system that runs through the entire house.
We imagine you’d need to activate the system from outside the house because the decibel level required could blow out your ear drums.
In the case of a home fire, most property damage is caused by water, a dry (or water-less retardant) system will help mitigate further damage to the home and belongings.
We expect to see practical applications within the next 36 months of testing.
They’ll likely get a ringing endorsement from major insurance companies as well as fire fighters everywhere.
