While we might experience some sound at what seem to be face-melting levels (like that epic Dream Theater show) or ear-splittingly loud (like the maddening squeal of subway brakes) . . . in actuality, those kinds of noises only produce about a hundredth of a watt per square meter. (Versus our big ol’ beautiful sun for example, which creates about 680 watts per meter squared.)
There’s a strong interplay between vibrations through the medium that you hear through—air or water—and the physical objects around you. It’s perfectly conceivable to absorb that movement and glean useable energy. You’re not going to power a city with it, but you can power small devices.” — David Cohen-Tanugi, water researcher at MIT
While we can’t lie (the specifics have been bandied about a bit) science agrees that our energy conservation probably doesn’t lie in our voices…but it very well might charge up our smart phones…or a triple AAA, just-for-my-dildo battery?
