What are you going to do to mark the upcoming release of “Iron Man 3“? If you’re superfan Patrick Priebe, you build your own Iron Man laser gauntlet.
As a 6-foot-tall, Mohawk-sporting hockey player, Priebe can come across as intimidating. His penchant for making laser weapons doesn’t help much either.
His Web site laser-gadgets.com showcases his passion for the science fiction and video games, a passion reflected in his jaw-dropping creations — guns that fire laser beams as well as laser-guided crossbows.
His latest creation is the Iron Man Laser Gauntlet, which fits over Priebe’s forearm. It fires lasers, not anti-tank missiles.
