If you have a penchant for tornados and fire, Kickstarter has your product right here. This thing is called the Flameflex and it promises to allow you to own and harness the power of a tiny fire tornado. Chicks love fire tornados. The device is designed to be used inside and has the power of a pair of suction cups on the bottom to secure it and the open flame to the surface you place it on.

The mesh cylinder on the outside spins, which causes an area of low pressure, and that whips the flame into a foot-long firenado. It’s fueled by a bioethanol fireplace solution¬†you can buy at your local hardware store. Power for the spinny part comes from a USB connection or batteries.

The people behind the product warn to keep pets and kids away from it. If you follow their guidance, it’s probably about as safe as a candle. If you don’t, the firenado may¬†escape and devour all. You can get your own Flameflex for $66-$78(USD) depending on the base material you choose. Materials include wood, copper, aluminum, and brass. The first shipments are expected to start in January 2017.
