James Bond-inspired LASER WATCH will burn through objects from a distance

Okay, WHO wants one? Get in line behind me.
Be sure to watch the demo.

Hobbyist Patrick Priebe has created a terrifyingly awesome laser watch that will burn through objects from afar

The Apple Watch is already obsolete and it isn't even in the shops yet.

The reason is simple – it doesn't contain a laser that can actually burn stuff.

If that's what you're looking for in a smartwatch, forget about Apple and look towards the work of hobbyist Patrick Priebe.

He's knocked together what he describes as the "Bond-inspired laser watch" and it might well consign the Apple Watch to the bin of history.

That's because this isn't just some laser pointer that has been encased into a box and had a wrist strap attached to it.

No – the 1,500-milliwatt laser in this thing is powerful enough to pop a balloon or even light a candle.

Because the laser is so powerful, the battery on the watch will only last between 5 and 10 minutes. But that’s 5 minutes of awesome laser arson.

Which has got to be better than being able to read your emails or check stock reports on a tiny screen. Sorry, Apple.

So far, Patrick's watch is a limited edition of one, which he says took around 40 hours to make.

He reckons that he’d charge at least $300 (about £190) if he was to make any more.

All you'd need would be a wallpaper pasting table and some strong duct tape and you've got yourself a James Bond torture scene. Although we do not condone such behaviour. Mwah, ha, ha!

Priebe makes a habit of creating awesome-but-terrifying weapons. In September he showcased a homemade Iron Man glove that fires real rockets.

He's also made a Spiderman 'web shooter' and DIY Wolverine claws.

His YouTube channel is well worth browsing for more.

Now I know what to ask Santa for.

Wait, he might be tempted to keep it for himself...

Ah, well, I'll send James Bond to the North Pole retrieve it for me.

Cool, but how do you keep from burning the top of your hand?

Thought about the same thing.

The answer probably is, tilt your hand down before pushing the button.

Just wondering if this could be magnified to be able to cut things like meats? Be a great jerky/cop slicer. Ya know i am kidding right?

I guess I can retire my magnifying glass. Look out ants, here I come.

The answer would be to position the laser emitter on the sides,... then you could shoot it like Ultra Man...

That's ace. I'd take it to a kid's birthday party, pop all the balloons and blame it on malevolent spirits.

This is just a blu-ray player laser. You guys can make your own. Check out this guy for all kinds of neat stuff.

Here is the laser of your own.
