Colin Furze is a genius, and his name shall henceforth be muttered with the hallowed tones generally reserved for Steve McQueen, Carrol Shelby, Q or your favorite porn star. Why? Because Furze, tired of tailgating motorists, invented a button-activated flamethrower for his scooter. It sprays flame up to 15 feet, plenty good enough to get the attention of even the most idiotic drivers. Not cool enough? His flamethrower is adjustable for angle, to get the perfect pitch for your opponent’s windshield.
Video after the jump.
Furze, a plumber by trade, developed the prototype using a BMX bicycle. His design was so effective, he naturally built the variable pitch model for use on his scooter. Sure it’s illegal, but Furze assures the authorities that he’ll only use it off road. Wink, wink, nudge, nudge.
I hope he licenses the design, because it sounds like the perfect remedy for cell phone lobotomized, mouth-breathing tailgaters. I already know how to make napalm, so maybe I’ll just get to work on a version of my own. Does anyone have a metal lathe and a spare scuba tank I can borrow?
