Just when you think you have seen it all…

A 25-year-old student, called Lucien Langton, who studies at the Lausanne University of Art and Design (ECAL), has recently built a functioning printer that uses fire for ink as it “prints” onto wood.


What Lucien has done is to create a fire printer he is calling the FireWriter. It consists of an inkjet printer that has been rebuilt with an Arduino Uno (a microcontroller equipped with an optical sensor) and fitted with a Dremel torch loaded with a mixture of butane and propane that burns at up to 1200 degrees Celsius.

You can see this fire printing in action in the following video:
