Fan creates working Iron Man glove with lasers that can burn through wood
You obviously need one of these before the premiere.
Why wait for the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron to see some Iron Man style tech in action? Patrick Priebe, the owner of Laser Gadgets, has made his own working Iron Man glove that includes light and sound effects.
Priebe’s glove features two lasers and the ability to eject small “shells.” The blue palm laser is strong enough to burn wood, fruit, and pop balloons while the top red laser has just enough strength to pop a balloon. Priebe demonstrates the glove’s abilities in the YouTube video below and offers an inside look at the glove’s mechanics.
According to CNET, it took Priebe three weeks to complete the glove, which is quite impressive. This isn’t the first time Priebe has created an amazing Marvel-inspired device: He also made an electromagnetic Spider-Man webshooter, Iron Man’s arm missile, and more.
