Flame Thrower Glove (video)
Nothing says “look at me” like a flame throwing glove, right? Patrick Priebe developed, designed and built this glove which can shoot flames from the palm of his hand by up to 3-4 feet. Want it? Tough, it ain’t for sale, but what you can get is a bit more info about the glove, though it won’t be enough to build your own, unless your of genius level intelligence.
Apparently, this isn’t Priebe’s first glove based system. Previous projects have included a 1-megawatt pulse laser gun, and a balloon-popping palm laser. Design wise he incorporated the base design from his laser glove and then folded in a 300-mL tank, NE555 circuit board, an HV driver, a flyback transformer and a set of AA batteries to create a large enough spark to ignite the fuel. We really don’t know what does what, but the results speak to themselves. It also doesn’t hurt that the glove could probably be hidden beneath a jacket and is finished with aluminum and brass accents.
