Mikey Sklar has developed the world’s first RFID-enabled flame shooting trampoline. Basically, an ultrasonic sensor placed below the trampoline detects height changes (information sent to a microcontroller), triggering a solenoid valve to open/close depending on the amount of force. Video after the jump.

The harder someone jumps on a trampoline the longer the solenoid valve will stay open, illuminating a cylindrical metal tube with stenciled designs. LP-Gas will be released through the solenoid valve while it is open and ignited by a nearby pilot light covered in steel wool.
