Man of Fire

Designer Neal Ormond is far too modest.  Some see their name in lights: Neal sees names in fire. He has built the a 96-inch flame display screen, called the "Infernoptix Digital Pyrotechnic Matrix." Using computer-controlled jets of fire, Neal's massive 12 X 7 array presents a visual fire-ballet of words and images synchronizred to music.  You have to see it and FEEL it: this metal matrix screen of flaming nozzles has a percussive mode, where scrolling letters actually send shock waves at the audience.  Neal's experiments with flame have included many other radical designs: a fire helmet, a flaming "battle tank", and many other vehicles and devices of explosive merriment. I want to be Neal when I grow up.
