Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. I know because only Santa could make a hidden wristband that allows me to launch fireballs from my open palm, and only Santa could make it available for my mama to purchase for me right before Christmas. Well, Santa and Adam Wilber.

Magician Wilber has spent 2 years perfecting the Pyro, a high-tech professional tool that will turn its trained subjects into Marvel superheroes or Fire Marios as they unleash real rolling flames from the palms of their hands. Ahhh, and I thought my lightsaber handle flashlight left the ultimate impression on LARP night. The Pyro unit contains 4 separate chambers, individually triggered for multiple shots, and with each detonated by a simple remote device. Fireball kindling is found in Flash Packs, flash cotton and paper sets that each contain enough "ammo" for 50+ uses.

Wilber intends Pyro operation to be subtle, hands-free, and spectacular. You know, like magic. The device's fit follows the contours of the wrist's underside, hiding beneath a sleeve so the fire-shooting hand remains empty, and the effect of an unbridled element torpedoing out of it remains suitably awe-inspiring. The remote switch summoning each fireball is held discreetly in the other hand and activates with a squeeze of the fist.

Wilber and retailer Ellusionist stress that, while completely F'ing badass, Pyro is not a toy. You must be at least 18 to purchase it, as well as agree to watch the Pyro instructional video in its entirety prior to using it as your next party trick or in the talent portion of the Cosplay Pageant.
