The Fire Gauntlet is an articulated hard-shelled glove, 3D printed all at once, fully assembled. The model is based on a 3D scan of my hand, with a 1.5mm clearance between the scanned surface and the printed model to allow for a Nomex cloth lining. Ideally the final design would be in stainless steel, but there are many challenges to making that happen. This prototype is a good start.

This version is only for display and is bonded to the production frame. It was printed using White Strong & Flexible material, painted and mounted on a wooden base.

So lemme get this straight...this is a glove that one can wear, fully articulated, of your own hand. If I am right, then that is pretty badass!

Wait, so this thing could actually be worn? I mean once you figure out a few details? That is brilliant! I would totally buy one if you do! Well, if it fits me that is XD

The first version shown here is intended mostly as a display concept, but yes, that is one of many design issues to consider with this project. I could be working on this for a while!
