The finished product may not produce the iconic lightsaber hum, nor does it glow as vibrantly as its movie counterparts, but it definitely can f*ck stuff up.
The Laser Guy had to wear protective goggles just to shoot the video, and as you’ll see, it is more than capable of melting items into ash.
Here’s a description of the science behind for you gadget nerds:
“BEAST 3000mW blue laser – This laser uses the new 9mm 450nm laser diode and runs on two 18650 Li Ion batteries. The housing is a custom machined “Sirius” host.”
The BEAST may not be a true to life lightsaber, but it sure is a weapon. Make sure to wear some shades when you watch the video after the break ;).
