I make no statement as to the veracity of the youtube comment but apparently...

He used a Bluray disc burner laser and replaced the toy's LED. Using an AA battery, it is strong enough to burn wood, rubber, or plastic if focused on it for a long time. There are other videos on Youtube that demonstrate that. Still pretty cool. Now if only someone developed a working transporter, we wouldn't need cars, planes, or boats to travel...

Looks like a fun toy, now we just need us some green skinned aliens to shoot at.

THAT IS SO COOL, its such a strange feeling seeing something now REAL, that was just fiction a little while ago.

inspires me to want to write some kind of science fiction to inspire the next generation of crazy scientist/inventors.

I think if you were to start waving that thing at drones there would be much police activity around you before you could blink.

Cooooooll!



Guy did an awesome job with that! I keep wanting to buy a powerful laser, but think I would get bored of it too soon to justify the cost. My understanding is that different lasers will pop different balloons, based on the light emitted/color of balloon.

I love nerds.

Oh, this site is kinda neat. Wickedlasers

I would set my phaser to kill.

Then I would shoot Fake Tupac.

Seems plausible...


But what the hell is up with the arm made of wax and the Bohemian Grove ring..?

This might be better than my bug zapper lightsaber idea.

Maybe.

Well, if that's what anyone can do with some basic knowledge, some spare computer parts laying around and the time to play, then what might places like DARPA have created with unlimited budgets and the best minds money can buy to tinker with the concept? I'll bet they started working this one before most of us were born...just to see what they could do. Gotta love DIY ingenuity! It does fire the imagination too.

I'd almost missed that Domo already posted the link above, but that is the Spyder III he linked which is supposed to be something like a Light Saber for the power of the laser and the damage it can do on near instant contact. Apparently it's at the level where burning starts right away and blinding would be a one shot, sure thing deal on the first 'oops'.
I wish I'd bought one when I had the chance and they look really interesting.

I'd wondered in looking at them the first time...what such a burning laser would do to a thing like, say, red-light camera sensors, if applied from just off it's line of recording view.
Of course...hypothetically, and I never did buy it.

I wonder if the Blu-Ray 'phaser' would work too.. lol

I think the first comment below the Youtube video sums it up, raw language and all... Just what will archaeologists think hundreds or thousands of years from now, digging though the remnants of old rotten apartments when....uh... WTF?!

Nice.. Wow.. The sheer level of work is staggering. If that guy ever needed a job in set production, I'd say his apartment is all the resume he'd ever need. I'm in awe....

When I was stationed at Nellis, I always started my nights here. Note, never start a night on the town drinking a "Warp-Core Meltdown"
