Rubens’ Tube Pyro is one geeky flame audio visualizer
Think that your music player’s visualizing is cool? Then have a look at this audio visualizer that throws out flames in patterns, colors and shapes depending on the music. Rubens’ Tube Pyro Board is one cool upgrade to the original Rubens tube by creative geeks from Denmark over at [Flysikshow], as they modded it with 2500 holes to fine tune details of the visualizer. By attaching two speakers to the sides of this pyro board and a steel box at the top, these guys managed to come up with a beat visualizer that is fit to be displayed at some cool rave party on the beach.
Rubens’ Tube Pyro Board is a very clever design that makes the flames come to life as the music gets more intense. The trick is to use the sound pressure of speakers to regulate the flow rate of gas leaving the holes. And this variation causes the standing flames for higher frequencies and blue color for lower frequencies.
As you can see in the video below, this cool DIY is pleasure to the eyes and when you imagine it being used at intense rave parties you can very well imagine the kind of atmosphere it will create.
