Three Men Are Designing Speakers That Shoot Fire

“Did Metallica cry because there were going to be pyrotechnics on stage? No!”

To call a song "fire" is to give that track one of the highest compliments. Now some clever entrepreneurs—Markus Buch, Matt Ward, and Christian Fisker—are hoping to bring that characterization to life with what they're calling the Sound Torch: a speaker system that syncs real live flames to whatever song you feel like playing. "WE ARE THE PEOPLE THAT MAKE PARTIES KICK ASS," the Sound Torch website declares. (Also: "Your Sound Torch will be the beating heart of your Mancave.") The designers are looking to raise enough money on Kickstarter to finance 100 of these. In the video above, you can see the flames respond to different music: it's pretty exciting to see bursts of white-hot fire every time the bass hits during Drake's "Started From The Bottom."
