See Smoke On The Water

This one is for the science geeks. You’ve all heard Smoke On The Water, perhaps several times too many. But ever wondered what it looks like? Here’s your big chance. An inventor from Norway demonstrates his gas burner that visualizes sound waves (in quite ingenious way, I must say). A tank of propane gas, a long pipe with lots of small holes and a membrane at the end, and a speaker. Now fire up the burner, hook up a guitar to the speaker and play. And what they’re playing? You’ve guessed it.

Visualising sound waves

Thanks to Anders Danielsen for spotting this and for the translation.
