Could yor voice shatter glass??

His did! I was watching a new gameshow the other night and this guy came out to reveal his secret talent...he shattered a wine glass by simply singing next to it! I was blown away, didn't know that actually happened! Go check out the clips at gsn.com/secret...pretty entertaining!

sure its possible, we talked about it in physics class the other day. it has to do either with frequency or i think its wavelength, if your voice wavelength matches the crystals



is this some kind of spam? seems like an odd first post

I know a certain frequency can do it, but I thought the human voice was incapable of reaching it. I saw it on "Mythbusters" and they deemed it plausable, so...wow congrats to that guy.

What you do to shatter glass with sound is to ping the glass and listen for its resonance pitch. Locate that pitch and play that pitch back at it as loudly as you can.

A daft science show called Braniac over here in the UK got that old band Status Quo to try it. They found a glass' resonance pitch to be a G#. So they cranked up the Marshall's and blasted out G# at the glass. It took several minutes but the glass did eventually explode.
It was reduced to dust.

Maybe just because they are delicate and thin enough. Might be harder to shatter a litre stein. I dunno.

if you can match the glasses resonant frequency just sustain that note right next to it loudly.

It was very cool when they did this on Mythbusters... with their high-speed camera you can see the glass wobbling around like gelatin before it finally goes far enough to break.
