Really interesting! I wonder if it could be possible to use the acoustic energy produced by the engine.

The problem with fire extinguishers is usually the operator.

There’s currently a video making the rounds of a truck burning at the pumps at a truckstop and the man walks up with a fire extinguisher clearly pointed up in the air at the flames and of course doesn’t accomplish a thing useful

Sound propulsion sounds like a good way to stop someone’s heart if they are in the wrong place. Star Trek disruptor of sorts.
