Fire is probably the most important discovery humanity has ever made. In fact, it can be credited as the catalyst (no pun intended) for human civilization. It’s also great at providing light and warmth while functioning as an excellent visual distraction. But an uncontrolled flame, even in a fire pit, can be dangerous. But you can have all of the benefits and none of the drawbacks if you pick up the Hofats SPIN fire tornado.
Boasting a 3-in-1 design — standalone, elevated, and on a tiki-torch-style pole — this beautiful and unique device is safe for both indoor and outdoor usage, thanks to its protective glass tube. Running on environmentally-safe bioethanol, it functions via simple physics, utilizing guide plates around the base that draw air inside and spin the flame like a tornado, making for a fire that climbs 500% higher than it would otherwise without any excess fuel. And while the flames are mesmerizing to watch, they also give off heat — making this perfect for keeping warm, too. This smokeless and odorless fire tornado can be yours if you back the project on Kickstarter starting at $112.
