Exclusive: Fire Goes Mobile! This is Hot!


Fire! It cooks our food and warms our caves.

Fire! It keeps the predators away and let’s us see when the flaming ball of light goes away for a time.

Fire! It can be hard to start and, once going, an ever-present job to keep stoked.

Fire! We don’t want to live without it but living with it can be a pain.

Until now!


Yes, for the first time starting a fire is as simple as rubbing one magic stick on a piece of black paper. It is magical. It is revolutionary. It is the most important advance since flint. We got an exclusive look at this advance and are pleased to break the news to you.

The tribe producing the product calls them “matches”. (I call them “fire on the go”. Judie calls them “Awesomeness and then some.” About them Michael says, “Game on!” And Carly, who took some time figuring them out only had this to say; “Ouch, that’s hot.”) Despite the name we all were pretty much amazed by the power and potential of this new invention.

Yes, portable fire is here and with it you will never have to go in search of two sticks to rub together.

We will have some review units in shortly and can’t wait to share our thoughts with you.

    This is so cool! It’s snowing out, and we won’t have to hunt for dried sticks tonight. Winter is going to be so much easier now.
