Working lightsaber ‘the most dangerous laser ever created’ | Posted | National Post
That is cool, personally; I'd like to see the double-sided version!
That is cheaper than those Light saber replicas!! I'm game, I need to make sure my apartment is secure
Only $200?! For a real working one, I thought it would be a hell of a lot more! Like, complete MIB Fortress Maximus more!
I need that.
Cool, but the question here is this: can it cut through twist ties so I can get to my dang toys quicker?!
Oh I feel so nerdy right now.
I like the comment: Now to hunt down Jar Jar
This has no real life application. Look, I'm gonna set your skin on fire and possibly give you cancer some years after exposure. It's no good for self defense, as a mugger would shoot or stab you for using it on him, and it can't even be used for surgery since it doesn't actually burn through the layers of skin and flesh. Just a very dangerous toy.
I know what I want for Christmas.
Lightsaber, my ass.
" OH SH*T! there goes Prime's arm!!!!"
Well the hilt looks cool but what the hell is this thing for?
For real. Why does anyone need a portable blue diode laser? What are some possible real-life applications other than burning out peoples' retinas and maybe getting cancer? If there are any, and anyone knows what they are, please educate me.
And how can the most dangerous laser ever created be available to ship to 70 countries via UPS upon completion of a written consent to abide by their safety regulations? Seems kinda f'ed up.
So it's a $200 laser pointer?
Edited for hilarity
I dunno why but this just made me lawl.
Can I start a campfire with it, cause if so, that would just be too cool.
Also, just imagine what one could do to the vinyl siding on the side of a house that belongs to someone you don't like.
I think this has many cool and jackass type applications, which is precisely why I want one.
I'm more impressed that DC is reading a Canadian newspaper.
So its more of a laser pointer on steroids than a lightsabre. Why is it whenever there's a story like this, I'm always disappointed?
Hell, this isn't even that powerful a laser, by laser standards. Burn retinas, pfft. Pop balloons, pfft. Give me a laser that I can weld with, or cut through metal, or communicate across space.
I want a laser I can etch in concrete in.
