ARSAC (Automation and Robotic Sciences and Artificial Cognizance) has been working on an acoustic fire extinguisher for years but is now ready to demo their product this March.
The technology works by using sound waves - a type of pressure wave - to push oxygen away from the source of a flame, putting out the fire without the use of water or toxic chemicals.
Using low frequency bass, the idea is not to completely extinguish wildfires, but to create acoustic boundary lines that prevent the fires from spreading.
They plan to dispatch drones to provide aerial surveillance so arrays of sound-wave fire extinguishers can be pointed in the right direction to create an acoustic fire barrier.
