To judge from his website, Chris Marion is a high school student who likes math, fire, and DIY projects. One of his latest don’t-try-this-at-home projects (that he appears to have tried at home) is alternately being called a “fire organ” or “fire sculpture.” It looks like a seriously fearsome menorah, with blow torches in place of candles. The coolest part? Marion rigged it to a Guitar Hero controller, meaning he and his friends can rock out to heavy metal jams while physically (pyrotechnically) incarnating the rhythmic lights associated with the game.
This calls for a video:
The utility and monetizability of Marion’s innovation remains to be seen. But everyone is familiar with ice sculptures, and a few have tried their hands at water sculptures–so isn’t it time we saw more fire sculptures? This could be one of the most important pyromaniac innovations since the firecracker.
