Unfortunately, outside of your television, human beings completely lack the capability to create fire without being dependent upon something else. Usually, people are dependent upon the traditional butane-powered lighter; but that's not very imaginative now is it? A flint is a bit more creative, but it's not quite there. How about starting fire with air? That, my friend, is very creative, and completely badass, and now completely do-able thanks to the creative team at Basecamp X with their Prometheus Fire Piston ($125 CDN.) It all starts with a hand turned and oiled receiver made of Tennessee hickory, into which a brass plunger is placed. It's the brass plunger that holds your bit of tinder that is ignited by the friction of the air, creating your fire. To see exactly how it works, check out the video below.
Just incase you think that air can't start your fire - you'll be happy to know that there is a backup sparking rod hidden inside the reciever.
This could be the coolest thing since The Fonz.
