I guess guard dogs are obsolete now, because this is even more intimidating . . .

Robot dogs with FLAMETHROWERS attached to their head are now something you can buy.  (???)

A company called Throwflame is selling one called the “Thermonator” for $9,400.  You operate it over WiFi or Bluetooth with a remote control, and it can shoot flames up to 30 feet.  (Here’s a video.)

The website says they’re legal in all 50 states.  You just need a special permit in California and Maryland.

They’re not pushing the guard dog angle, but they do list eight different things it’s perfect for.

They include controlled burns . . . ice and snow removal . . . clearing weeds . . . pyrotechnics or entertainment . . . and also pest removal.
