    would it be possible to construct a lung-powered infrasound emitter using an elongated didgeridoo?

    Love the question! But how would you know what you're playing? And doesn't infrasound harm the body in some way, or is that a myth?

    to test an infrasound sensor, I wouldn't need to hear the 'note'.

    And I think that it does cause some problems at extreme amplitudes, but in general, those cases are exaggerated. Not sure on this, but that's my overall impression.
