High Fire Collaborative Mitten Firestarter #WearableWednesday

December 31, 2014 Becky Stern

Natsuki Hayashi made a set of mittens that set a candle ablaze when everybody holds hands! She used a GEMMA, conductive fabric, and shaved match heads with nichrome wire to light the candle. She wrote up the tutorial on Instructables:

High Fire is a paired set of mittens that symbolizes the bond between friends and creates a magical moment. When four people wearing mittens high five or join hands, the candle is ignited.
