So, what can you do with sound other than conveying a message? Let’s take a look.
8) Weaponize it
The current destructible human nation tries to turn any physical entity in to a deadly weapon. And since, sound couldn’t simply hide, they got it. One such physical implementation of such a weapon that is based on sound is known as Long Range Acoustic Device (LRAD).
The device, that looks like a spotlight can fire a beam of sound at a target hundreds of meters away. This beam of high and intense sound can be used for crowd control and for breaking up riots. If you get near such a sound source, it can cause severe debilitating pain and also certain permanent damages.
7) Make Art
Sound is a wave that can be transferred into any physical medium. The sound waves have the capacity to produce certain patterns on solids. The study of those patterns is known as Cymatics. People have been using the concepts of Cymatics to make beautiful artifacts.
The general method is by placing substance like sand on a diaphragm and then vibrating the diaphragm using sound that created different interesting patterns. This phenomenon was first discovered by Galileo in 1632.
6) Kill Someone
5) Fight Crime With It
4) Turn it into a Laser (or rather Phaser)Ever head of Phasers? Yeah, the ones from the Star Trek. Well, those weren’t really made up of sound but recently Japanese scientists have made Sound Phasers. The reason why they wouldn’t technically be called lasers is because the mechanism on which lasers work, cannot be applied on sounds.
3) Heel A Wound
2) Go Back In Time
However, too quiet and peace isn’t really bearable for human beings. The longest anyone has ever spent alone in such a chamber is forty-five minutes. That place is where you can even hear your own organs and research has proved that people may even go mad in there.
