Colin Furze Builds Alexa Voice-activated Flamethrower

 |  |  |  |  |  April 9, 2018

Madman builder Colin Furze continues to add to his arsenal of dangerous playthings. This time, he designed and built Alexa voice-activated flamethrower. This guy never stops building insane things that could put him in the hospital. Or worse. I guess we can all vicariously live through him so that we don’t have to face the danger.

To be honest, this thing less of a flamethrower and more of a jet flames downward situation. If your coffee machine switched from dripping coffee down into your cup to shooting fire down into it, this is what it would look like – minus the visit from the fire department. You can skip to 7:30 in the video if you just want to see the thing in action and don’t care about how he built it.

Also, I just want to say, you shouldn’t ever give Alexa fire. I mean, one minute you’re playing the Talking Heads’ “Burning down the House” and the next your house is burning. Not cool, Alexa. Not cool at all.
