The Internet of Things isn’t just about connecting your garage door to your car or your fridge to Amazon. It can also be about connecting your smartphone to a flamethrower, as SparkFun’s Nick Poole shows in a DIY project that he made to promote their new ESP8266 Thing dev board.

Nick made a webpage that contains links to toggle the flamethrower’s valves and ignitor. He then set up the Thing to broadcast a Wi-Fi access point from which you’ll connect to access the webpage.

Now that’s blazing fast Wi-Fi. Head to SparkFun’s blog to see Nick’s full guide.
