The 2,500 Bunsen Burner Audio Visualizer Coffee Table

April 21, 2014


This is the Pyro Board, a table containing 2,500 flames that respond to the audio pumped beneath it. It's like a real-life Winamp visualizer. Remember in college when you used to get high and listen to your favorite music at night watching Winamp at full screen? Those were simpler times.

The pressure variations due to the sound waves affect the flow rate of flammable gas from the holes in the Pyro Board and therefore affect the height and colour of flames. This is interesting for visualizing standing wave patterns and simply awesome to watch when put to music.

Heck yeah, flaming coffee table! Just make sure to moved all your remotes and video game controllers before firing this bad boy up. You smell that? Smells like somebody just got a new coffee table! Jk jk, smells like my cat's on fire. I told you to stay off the furniture!

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Marcus O, who wants a table that visualizes music WITH EXPLOSIVES. Omg that would be so sweet.
