    Saw it on Gizmodo recently, all those minute controls make it pretty awesome.

    If S'mores are your favorite treat then you've found the best friend you could have.

    Bonus points for the Bond villain style product name. I wonder what actual practical application it might have, though?

    I'm intrigued, but I do think there's a good reason not naming your product or prototype after Greek myths that end with you having your liver eaten by carrions on a daily basis. Or having your wings melt off and plunge to you death, if your prototype involves flying of any sort.

    @Curb, it may not be "practical" but they may or may not use a similar device in a Cirque Du Soleil show...

    Doesn't quite compare to a guy I saw on 4chan's /co/ board a while back. He built an entire supervillain costume with pyrotechnic elements (similar structure to this guy's idea, but he also had a staff that shot fire from the tip), then went to terrorize NYCC. Still, good to see people are getting on the superpowers bandwagon.

    Fire! Fire!

    Now, if someone could create one of those that shoots tiny, explosive pellets from the palm, ala' Tabitha Smith in Nextwave, I'd be a very happy little girl.

    Lissa, you want a miniaturised version of this.

    That's rad. And damned fun to read about the workings. Knives, gun powder, gas and shotgun shells? Sounds like a party!

    Something similar to Kosmopolit's "Fireball generator ", but using using metal instead of gas: Dragon's Breath.

    It's the device though, not just the flame, that's impressive in the OP; that, and the fact that he had enough confidence in it to wear it.

    I can't really argue with that.

    Cheers for the link. The inventor of the Prometheus device has a future in showbiz!

    Dude, seriously, I squealed when I first saw that character. Fire AND a costume reminiscent of a Plague Doctor? Score! and yay for futures in Showbiz!
