Seeing superheroes like Iron Man and Batman in action can result in extreme jealousy. By harnessing technology that's just beyond the fringes of what we're capable of they show us a future that propels humans beyond our own limitations.

Some enthusiasts just can't wait though, which is precisely why LaserGadgets, a company that builds custom-designed laser props has gone and built its very own Iron Man glove.

If you're interested the glove design is from Iron Man 2. It features a powerful blue palm laser that replicates the repulsor technology that Tony Stark installs in the hands while a red wrist-mounted laser replicates the film-ending weapon that Stark uses to cut a robot army in twain.

The glove even comes with a replica cartridge which then ejects after the wrist-mounted laser is fired.

While high-powered lasers are very clearly not toys, this glove absolutely is, for adults.
