Fire and water: mortal enemies? Not so fast! Here are 5 ways to start a fire, using water.

I figured out how to make fire and water work together. My friends at Volkswagen, who made this video possible, figured out a way to make a German-engineered car, that’s a blast to drive, also a smart choice.

Some quick links to a few of the materials I used:

Under certain conditions, an open flame can grow to an uncontrollable, blazing fire. This may result in serious injury, burns, property damage, forrest fires, grass fires, and even death. Use of video content is at own risk.

Project Inspired By:

My own creative adaptations to previous projects, and the picture frame lens was inspired by www.greenpowerscience.com with their Aqua lens video: http://youtu.be/f_zKk03CJKU

Projects & pictures that inspired this video:

#1: Original idea adaptation after experimenting with water bottles
#2: Original idea adaptation after experimenting with water bottles (I also demonstrated this method with urine in another video: https://goo.gl/CIUGRl#3: GreenPowerScience http://youtu.be/f_zKk03CJKU
#4: Original idea adaptation from experimenting with water bottles, and looking for a bottle shaped like a sphere. The POM bottles are perfect!
#5: Original idea after experimenting with the reactions between water and sodium metal in a previous video: https://goo.gl/AhD0lQ

Project History & More Info:

In this video you’ll see how to;

- Start a fire using an old light bulb and water
- Get tinder smoldering using plastic wrap and water
- Make a hands free liquid lens with a picture frame and plastic wrap
- Ignite tinder using a water bottle
- Start a blazing fire by reacting water and sodium

I love the idea that simple resources can be utilized to help meet our basic survival needs. Water is about as basic and abundant as it gets. To use it as a liquid lens you just need to find a way to make it round, clear, and hope for a sunny day! Then, your imagination is the only limitation. :)
