This Iron Man Glove Shoots Lasers #WearableWednesday

If you ask any kid, they’ll tell you that they love Iron Man’s suit because it can shoot things. Well, it doesn’t take a kid to love this glove that I found on Popular Science. It was hand crafted by Patrick Priebe, who makes custom designs of laser style gadgets for clients. His Iron Man glove has two lasers, one on the palm and one on the top, so like tennis, you can do a forehand and backhand type of attack.The glove also makes the power sound that you’ve grown to love on the movie, which makes it mega fun. The coolest part is the small piece of metal that gets flung with a “clink” after the shoot. It just speaks to the sound of needing to reload.

Patrick shows off the glove’s power by shooting balloons, pieces of wood, and an orange on the video. I have to admit that I’ve only ever played with a laser pointer with my cat, so I actually found this section of the video really interesting. Seriously, the glove is really a great replica that any cosplayer would be psyched to wear, and it would be perfect in combination with our Unibeam chest gadget. With some 3D printing, NeoPixels and electronic skills you can have an awesome outfit for Comic Con. Move over Hulk!
