Sufficiently Advanced Technology or Magic? “Punch Activated Arm Flamethrowers” are for real world “Firebending”… Just like your favorite Anime and Video Games, DIY “Street Fighter”‘ Flamethrower Gloves now let you Blast out Fireballs with “Good… Scroll down to read more!

Meet Korra.  That’s her below.  Korra is from “The Legend of Korra”, a part of the TV series “Avatar” (apparently this is popular among today’s youth), and, as you can see, Korra uses flamethrowing gloves to “firebend”.  

Coincidentally, “the flamethrower move” is also popular in the game “Street Fighter”… 

Well, thanks to inspiration from fantasy warfare (and YouTube DIY tech star Allen Pan, who, as of today, has 342,439 subscribers and nearly 50 million views on his YouTube Channel), there are now very real world flamethrower gloves.  Allen’s mantra is taken from Arthur C, Clark (“Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic”), as he describes on his YouTube “About” page: “My name is Allen, I try to make pretend things into real things!” and as you can see below, Allen is a man of his word.  Allen has made and displayed (in his videos) a variety of devices, including a grappling hook gun, “web shooters” (a la Spiderman), and Thor’s hammer, and on July 29th, 2017 Allen revealed his latest work in a new video, and it is based upon anime characters and computer games: Punch Activated Arm Flamethrowers” .

The flamethrower part of the glove relies on a solenoid valve, an arc lighter (an electric, battery-powered lighter) for ignition, and a chamber containing flammable butane gas to produce the flames. 

The flamethrowing gloves track the wearer’s arm motion and only activate on “good punches”.  Get ready, because in describing how the gloves work I (via Allen) am gonna get technical:

Hackster” (the punch activated part of the project) relies upon an “Arduino Pro Mini” (a small computer built on a single integrated circuit board) and an accelerometer (an instrument for measuring acceleration).  

The accelerometer measures the speed of the punch and feeds this information to the Arduino circuit.   Per Allen: “A first performing a punch has a fairly unique acceleration profile.  A punch begins with a significant positive acceleration, followed by an extreme deceleration – the end of a punch.  A punch’s acceleration profile all happens within a small time frame, usually less than 100 milliseconds.  By recognizing this pattern, the tiny Arduino computer can distinguish between punches and normal, everyday movements. 


Once the device is assembled and mounted to an arm, the result is a flamethrower that can be actuated by am Arduino computer only when the wearer has thrown a punch.”  (Incidentally, Allen – wearing red – is not only clever but he’s also smart… The guy in black is, reportedly, a real world kung fu expert.  On his video Allen captions: “Legend of Korra: Turf Wars just came out! There’s a lot of Real Firebending videos on YT and they all suck. So I made punch activated arm flamethrowers and put them on a real kung fu master.”)

And so there you have it.  Punch Activated Arm Flamethrowers”. I suppose that It’s only a matter of time before they’re available at K-Mart or on Amazon…  I wonder if Arthur C, Clark is proud of Allen’s homage (or rolling in his grave…).
