    Not totally new to science of course, making fire in water, as the concept as existed for a while. But that way he did it was pretty cool.

    This is gonna be one of those famous things that were accidently invented. Like soda pop, or sticky notes.

    Nothing was really invented. Electrolytic separation of oxygen and hydrogen to burn as fuel is roughly 70 years old. Using EM radiation to do so is equally old. What's surprising is that he has somehow figured out how to do it to salt water, an ionized solution (containing sodium chloride, which is hard to separate from free hydrogen) using EM.

    He only meant to heat it up, but somehow he actually made it combust.

    Which was an accident, in which the product or method may be extremely useful/profitable in the future. It might not be actually inventing be you know what I mean.

    Heh, cool! That would make swimming in the beach a whole lot more fun!

    And we could burn the water and save worries about flooding! Win win win!

    Also in the same page, apparently the dude also invented a machine which could also potentially cure cancer!

    This guy is a fricking genius! He's (potentially) solved 2 of the worlds great problems! :omg

    I actually didn't check out the vid and photos. Now I did, and WOW ! There's a fucking flame above the water !! As said by Spectre, it's normal for hydrogen to burn in contact of oxygen (is that the H2+O2 reaction ? Because H alone won't react IIRC), but normally, and with my school memories, it normally goes "BAM !", a sudden mini explosion the moment you open the test tube full of H2 after electrodialysis. He, it just burns ! Regularly ! And in a controlled manner !

    I now have to understand how it could put to practical use... I saw the test with the little machine that had a mechanism working with the flame. But for cars, I wonder... With some engineering, could it replace oil based explosion engines ?

    The way he did it isn't really cool or different. I'm pretty sure this is how fuel-cell cars work. It's like one of those kids at a science fair who thinks he discovered something amazing, but then it turns out it's been done a million times.

    im not sure that wine will burn. anything over 80 proof works rather well though.

    nonetheless, awesome
