Tear up your holiday wishlist, because the chances are that whatever was on it is nowhere cool as this device from Ellusionist, which allows you to launch actual fireballs -- "magnificent balls of fire," as the manufacturer calls them -- from the palms of your hands, as if you're X-Men foe Pyro or Prince Zuko of the Fire Nation. Seriously.
As the website cautions, the Pyro Fireshooter by Adam Wilber is not a toy. Definitely not. It's a pyrotechnic gadget for adults who ... want to look badass, and possibly set things on fire. Magnificent balls of fire!
The website contains all the details -- four individually triggered barrels, flash cotton or paper packs, etc. -- along with a pretty cool video (which, alas, isn't embeddable) and the price: $174 each, which seems pretty reasonable. Not that I've bought a lot of handheld fireball launchers, mind you ...
