The Fire Tornado is a mechanical device that creates a vortex of fire. We’ve seen it get to 20 ft tall! The Fire Tornado was created, designed and constructed by Erin Banwell in the summer of 2006.
Below is the music video to Erin Banwell’s track “Explode!”, off his album “Life is Like a River…” featuring The Fire Tornado. Enjoy.Erin Banwell’s album “Life is Like a River…” can be purchased on itunes.
The drive mechanism was built with recycled materials. An old dryer motor, a bicycle rim (minus the spokes), and an automotive serpentine belt.
