Watch This Team's Attempt to Literally 'Fight Fire with Fire'

The team of General Electric demonstrates how they fight fire with fire... sort of.

The idiom "Fighting fire with fire" was never meant to be taken literally, but GE has done just that. They've challenged their best engineers to find out a way to fight fire with fire.

Their solution? record the sound of fire and use the sound waves produced by a 360-degree array of speakers to smother the fire.

Watch the video and decide for yourself if this truly is fighting fire with fire.
