Do you crave a laser gun? German DIY meister Patrick Priebe can help you out. A diehard fan of the "Iron Man" films, Priebe is also crazy about lasers.
A former lab technician, Priebe combined his passions in his homemade Iron Man Laser Gauntlet, which fires two blue 1.2W lasers as well as two 4mW lasers for aiming. While he's excited about the third installment of the film series, he says he has no plans to create a full Iron Man suit.
Priebe's Pulse Laser Gun emits a powerful blast of infrared light that can instantly pop balloons. A demo video also shows it punching holes through plastic.

The Flame Glove shoots fire from the palm of your hand -- if you have the guts to try it. This video shows the butane-powered flamethrower sending out a column of flame from Priebe's hand. Unfortunately, or perhaps fortunately, it's not for sale.
