I came in to say what #2 said. For a second there I was afraid this video was going to end very badly.
There is something kinda cool about this, granted this guy is gonna blow/burn his hand off but even so its difficult to get an image of the “Firebat” infantry from Starcraft out of my head.
I suppose if this were a real project rather than just some kid nearly exploding whilst doing an x-men homage then having the nozzle a longer distance away from the hand, possibly mounted lower and further forward would be a good idea, also fireproof gloves and some kinda armour plating/shock absorbers/insulation on the entire thing
Just hope this kid remembered his trusty non-return valve else he’s gonna be missing the entire kidney area when that belt mounted tank explodes
great, i’ll combine this with my exoskeleton
I particularly enjoyed the part when he cautiously looked into the flamethrower nozzle.
Has this boy never seen a Wile E. Coyote cartoon?
Looks like he has a piezo igniter actuated by moving his hand back away from the nozzle mounted on the inside of his wrist. So we can give him credit for one good decision but on balance, this has Bad Idea written all over it. I want to see the gag reel where he covers a sneeze and sets his hair on fire.
Obligatory “future Darwin Award recipient” comment…
