(Before It's News)

Matt picked up an Ion XM42 handheld flamethrower and it seems like a blast.

Detroit-based Ion Productions has been working on the XM42 flamethrower concept since 2008 and in 2015 raised $50,000 overnight through crowdsourcing to move what they billed as the “world’s first commercial handheld flamethrower” forward into production. We talked to Chris Byars, Ion’s president and founder last year, who said “Farmers, firefighters, controlled burn prescribers have used devices that emit streams of fire for many years,” and the XM42 has serious applications.

Matt promises to add it to the research line-up.

“I still have a healthy fear of flame throwers, but it’s getting better,” says Matt.
