Firefighters in the Future Could Fight Fires with Flame-Bending Electricity

fire

Firefighters could someday snuff out flames by zapping them with pulses of electric current.

In some respects, firefighting technology has come a long way over the past several decades–we now have flame suppressing foams and powders for instance, as well as new ways of delivering them to the fire. But fundamentally, we’re still fighting fires the old fashioned way: point hose/bucket/ pressurized container and drench. But a team of Harvard researchers envisions a day when firefighters will snuff out flames not with a physical suppressant but with a blast of electric current.

The Reciprotating Combustion Engine From Hoyt Engine Alternative Technologies

Engine-Real

Featured invention at the Colorado Inventor Showcase 2009

The Reciprotating™ Combustion Engine is an innovative motor design that provides significant improvements in overall efficiency over the traditional internal combustion engine (Otto cycle). These improvements are described in and protected by pending domestic and international patents. The Engine creates a source of direct hydraulic pressure that can be stored and utilized to perform any engine-driven work.
