Become an X-Men Character with the Prometheus Device...

Let me start off with stating: Do Not Try This At Home....
Now that I got that out of the way.... check out what Everett Bradford built at his home, a super dangerous homemade flame-trower attached to the palm of his hand called the Prometheus Device. Not only is it attached to his hand, the flame size is fully controllable just by changing the angle of the wrist (see video demo below)...
The device uses a servo-controlled valve, which sits atop a tank that holds a butane and propane mixture. It uses an arc generator that creates a spark across the arc gap, in front of the burner. And then, there’s a reflexion sensor, that determines how far back his hand is, and judges the amount of flame that needs to be projected.
