The 21 Coolest Things We Saw at Maker Faire 2018

Wrist-Mounted Flamethrower

This outrageously perfect wrist-mounted flamethrower is the third version from a pyro-genius. It took four years for Stephen Hawes to make this spectacle, which uses a camping propane tank, a modified taser as an ignition, and a custom circuit board. It may not be the safest wearable, but it's guaranteed to make you look tougher than anyone wearing Google Glass.

    I really like Wrist-Mounted Flamethrower. Should have been used on guy who enabled video auto-play here.

    I agree that the wrist-mounted flamethrower is pretty neat. I showed some of my students a few of these Maker Fair concepts and they became completely caught by dreaming up ideas of their own.
