Man Makes Homemade Lightsaber That Can Melt Retinas
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 ;).
