DIY Wrist-Mounted Flamethrower Lets You Pretend To Be An X-Man

Pyro was never my favorite of the X-Men, but that doesn't mean I'm not excited about this DIY project allowing me to mimic his powers. It's called Prometheus, and it's by far one of the best wrist-mounted flamethrowers I've seen.

We've seen this guy's work before, but nothing actually produced such a controlled flame or came with building instructions as detailed as Everett Bradford's new Prometheus Device. And while I know that Pyro technically controls fire rather than actually making it, short of mutant genetics, this project is as close as we'll get. And it's damn awesome. [Prometheus via Make]
