If this Kickstarter campaign is successful, you may soon be able to create a miniature fire tornado on demand in the privacy of your own home (without unleashing hell upon the neighborhood).
The “Flameflex” utilizes a USB or battery-powered mesh cylinder which spins, creating an area of low pressure and a foot-long firenado. The fire itself is fueled by a bioethanol divided into two cells inside the device.
Needless to say, the Flameflex shouldn’t be used around kids or pets, but is said to be about as safe as a candle when used properly. A number of material options are available, including wood, copper, aluminum, and brass with prices ranging between between $66 and $78. Initial shipments are slated for January 2017.
