College Students Invented a New Fire Extinguisher that is… Umm, Sound-Powered? Amazing!

Engineering students discovered a sound-powered fire extinguisher that is truly effective and amazing!

Fire accidents are always traumatic, and can leave us with absolutely nothing if it is a massive case. Good thing, we have fire fighters and their equipment that can help to put out the devastating flames. But sometimes, these devices fall short in saving things and lives, because fire in general spread so quickly. This is why we are so thrilled with the new invention of two students from George Mason University.

Viet Tran and Seth Robertson, engineering seniors at the said school recently invented a new type of fire extinguisher, specifically for kitchen fire. What made their discovery so unique is that it uses sound technology to work! Cool! This device uses bass frequencies to put out fire and save lives; now that’s what I call groovy rescue!

“Viet Tran and Seth Robertson’s new fire extinguisher looks a little like a conventional one, but instead of a compressed air tank spewing out chemicals, theirs has a loudspeaker the size of subwoofer drumming out sound waves,” reports CNN. “It’s not much to listen to, just a low hum, but when pointed at flames, it makes them vanish.”

This new discovery is said to be safer than other chemical currently being used to put down flames. With its efficacy and safety, the two students may be right in their video description of the device, “now hold a preliminary patent application for their potentially revolutionizing device.”

Monica Lewinsky’s TED Talk Will Change The Way You View Cyberbullying

Just like Monica Lewinsky, everyone deserves a second chance….

By

Long before the age of social media, Monica Lewinsky, a woman once tagged as former President Bill Clinton’s other woman, became the first victim of online bullying.

For almost two decades, Monica chose to remain silent and disappear from the public. But with internet shaming becoming a mainstream culture not just in America but worldwide, the woman whose life was tremendously changed by this trend, decided to speak out against it.

In a monumental talk she gave for TED Talk last March in Vancouver, Monica discussed the “The Price of Shame”. The woman involved in a sex scandal with Clinton in 1998 talked about  how cyberbullying and online harassment affected her life.

Monica revealed:...

A wall-mounted flowerpot that comes with a cute cloud-shaped water filter, the Rainy Pot creates the illusion that your plant is getting raindrops from clouds.

So how exactly does this work?...
