How Sound Waves Could Power a Greener Air-Conditioner
At an APS meeting on fluid dynamics, researchers discussed thermoacoustic heat pumps, a decades-old technology they believe could emit fewer greenhouse gases than conventional cooling technologies (ENGLISH).
Heat pump uses a loudspeaker and wet strips of paper to cool air
A prototype heat pump that uses water and sound to cool is three times as efficient as previous comparable designs (ENGLISH).

The Silent Engine - הקול בראש: המנוע השקט בדרך להשתלט על העולם
In a Technion lab, researchers are developing the engine of the future, using sound waves to replace all moving parts. The result should be cheaper, more durable, and environmentally sound: "it sounds like science fiction, but it's definitely possible" (HEBREW).
