Just like every blade needs a sheath to protect it from the elements, the PyroVault is, as its name suggests, an exoskeleton for your lighter. Designed to let you take your lighter to places you’d carry your EDC, the PyroVault allows your lighter to be weatherproof and even waterproof, making it perfect for inclement weather, or camping outdoors. An incredibly resilient polymer outer body can withstand heat, water, snow, dust, and comes with an O-Ring that seals the lighter when closed, turning it waterproof. The O-Ring seal also prevents vapor leakage, letting your lighter last longer.
Designed and manufactured in USA, the Pyrovault accepts standard Zippo-style lighter inserts including both fluid and butane torch models, turning classy lighters into rugged firestarters that can withstand any sort of conditions you may expect outdoors… and it even comes with a MOLLE/PALS compatible clip that you can use to fasten the Pyrovault to your pocket, jacket, or even backpack.

It doesn’t seem like it was that long ago that Robert Downey became Iron Man, but it’s actually been more than 10 years. Downey first played his iconic character in 2008. To celebrate his 10 years on screen, Marvel fan Jennifer Morgan has cobbled together all the Iron Man suit ups she could get her hands on into a single fun video.
The video spans all of the suit-ups from 2008 through 2017 and is about eight minutes long. Iron Man is one of my favorite Marvel heroes, and I wish they would make more standalone flicks with him in it. IMHO, the only other superhero that is as funny as Iron Man and his alter ego Tony Stark is Deadpool.
I’ve seen some pretty amazing case mods over the years, but this life-size Iron Man PC might just be the most incredible PC build yet. Pro system builder Jengki Wmp of World Media Plus created this life-size sculpture of Iron Man in his Mk. 45 armor, which also happens to double as a high-end gaming PC.
The system houses an MSI X99A Xpower Gaming Titanium motherboard, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card with 8GB, an Intel Core i7-5820K CPU, speedy ZADAK511 Shield 3000MHz DDR4 memory, a 240GB ZADAK511 Shield SSD, and a 600W Thermaltake Toughpower PSU. The whole thing is water-cooled using a Thermaltake system. It makes me wonder if Tony Stark’s Arc Reactor would last longer if it were water-cooled, or if it would just electrocute him.
Of course, what makes this system so awesome isn’t the computer, but the incredible, detailed sculpting, with super-shiny red and gold armor, and a slick light-up interior so you can see all the computer components. The rainbow-illuminated cooling fans in Iron Man’s back are a nice touch too.
Amazing build, Jengki. I can’t imagine how much time and effort it took to create this thing, but you deserve all of the awards they throw your way.

We have this Mini Australian Shepherd that is my daughter’s dog. That naturally means he is really my dog because I have to take care of him. He is pure, fuzzy evil. His name is Jet because he runs literally everywhere no matter if he can’t stop his full-on doggy sprint before he smashes into something. We also call him various other names like Jetty McJetface, Jetticus Maximus, or Dickhead. The latter typically reserved for when he randomly sprints up to me, smashes into my leg, and tries to steal the socks off my feet. I’d like to buy him some of this samurai pet armor and change his name to Shogun.
He’d probably chew the armor right off himself, but he would be the most badass dog at the dog park and have some protection the next time a German Shepard tries to hump him. I think that scared him for life, he now routinely tries to hump every German Shepard puppy he sees in revenge.
Samurai Age pet armor costs costs about $130 to $150, depending on the style and size. You can tell these photos are legitimately from Japan because the dog’s junk is blurred out.
It looks like we have a real life Tony Stark on our hands. Inventor Richard Browning and his team at start-up, Gravity Industries, have created the Daedalus. It is basically a special suit that turns its wearer into a flying hero.
Its’ pretty fun to watch in action. Browning is able to control it with miniature jet engines on his limbs. Twin turbines mounted on his back or legs are for balance, and the two on each arm angle forward. He points down to create “a teepee of thrust vectors,” pushing him away from the ground.
He also needed to do some specialized exercises to build up his strength and balance to fly the thing. It may not be as graceful as Iron Man’s armor, but it is a great start.
The suit can travel at speeds up to 279 miles an hour, but it is worth noting that Browning hasn’t tested it anywhere near full capacity. I would love to play around with this suit, although I’d probably get seriously hurt.
