Ikigai is foremost the superior homepod. Developed before that beautiful quilted exterior was public, Ikigai was on the market filling homes with a whole orchestra and protecting kitchens from the nuisance of fire. Wall mounted with quick release clip, if danger arises, your speaker is easily in hand to extinguish a roaring pan fire with a low frequency hummmm.

This concept is based on technology developed by Viet Tran and Seth Robertson while at George Mason University. By directing low frequency sound waves, the air pressure extinguishes small flames.

By bringing this technology into the home, it will help fund research developments to expand use to chemical sensitive places prone to fire, ex. space stations.


"You're trying to say fire can

be extinguished by sound?!

That's black magic,

I'm calling Bull $#!T."


"The fire extinguisher uses low-frequency sound waves to douse a blaze. Engineering seniors Viet Tran and Seth Robertson now hold a preliminary patent application for their potentially revolutionizing device."

 - George Mason University


Ikigai opens opportunities never before possible, moving the fire extinguisher out of the back of people's minds and into their daily lives. When in need, it is ready. Simply lifting the handle immediately releases the speaker from the wall and switches into extinguishing mode.



While you were busy jamming out and trying beers with your new 6-pack holder you've now realized the brownies for your coworkers lit your oven on fire. The party has been halted but, you follow the sound of "Friday" by Rebecca Black to your speaker, pull that baby off the wall to fight it. What will you hear now? Below is a small selection of heavy bass and wonderful options to set as your fire fighting theme song.
