Wrist Flamethrower is an Accident Waiting to Happen, but We Still Love It

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  July 6, 2010


ShockSlayer is one of those guys you can rely on to crank out cool portable game consoles, and the (occasional light-up Zelda belt buckle) but it turns out that in his spare time, he likes to play with fire.

In this vid clip, SS shows off his work-in-progress wrist-work flamethrower in action. The rig consists of an aerosol can of butane, some tubing, a nozzle and a finger-controlled trigger made from string. It’s definitely not something I’d strap to my arm if given a choice.

Now SS hasn’t figured out a permanent source of ignition, so he has to start it with a torch, but once it’s going, it’s definitely something that could strike fear into the hearts of anyone who tries to mess with him.

While I can’t in good conscience advocate you guys building this sort of dangerous rig for yourselves, I have to hand it to ShockSlayer for his ingenuity. Now don’t set the house – or the cat – on fire.
