Reminds me of a flashbang. Could use some confinement.

The sense of this is to produce light, not a loud bang. I use it on stage events.

Its difficult to see in the video but it really leaves you blind for a sec.

The principle of light emitters is to have a LOT of the metal present and use the air for most of the burning, it also means that the flash is quiet (well by flash powder standards!) There is no need for photoflash to be a very short flash (bang!) 

 

Shidlovskii goes into this in much detail.
