Rubens’ Tube Pyro Board Is An Audio Visualizer For Our Times


Forget about the audio visualizers that your eyes have seen during the days of Winamp – those were pretty trippy, but I would say that none were able to hold a candle (pun not intended) to the Rubens’ Tube Pyro Board that you can see in action for yourself in the video above. This two-dimensional Pyro Board depicts the unique standing wave patterns of sound within the box, where it is made possible thanks to the pressure variations created by the sound waves that affect the flow rate of flammable gas from the holes in the Pyro Board. This in turn would also see changes made to the height and color of flames. The Pyro Board itself is a 2D plane that comprises of 2,500 Bunsen burners.

One thing is for sure – if you were to have this in your home the next time you want to host a party, then you would not be able to go wrong with it. After all, it is guaranteed to wow anyone who sees it, especially when you have some pretty heavy hitting music. Just be careful not to barbecue stuff on it, simply because the flames are not going to be as controlled as you would like, so your skewers of meat might be overdone or undercooked, depending on the soundtrack that is being played at that moment.
