Okay, for super nerd-dom I have to hand this one to Jay Rob from the Laser Pointer Forums. Â Jay took a 12X Blu-Ray laser (from that great supplier AixiZ) and stuffed it into one of those old Star Trek phaser toys. Â So now, instead of being on stun, it’s set on “I’ll Burn You, Mofo.”
That’s right. Â Check out this video – Jay opens up a can of ButtKick on some balloons from across the room:
That is freaking awesome. Â Jay posted the entire how-to on the Laser Pointer Forums – definitely check it out! Â He’s even added a safety to his modification!
If you’re gonna be playing around with lasers, especially this kind of laser project, you need to cough up some bread and get a pair of laser filter glasses so you don’t burn your eyes out. Â Here’s a pair from OEM LAser Systems, Inc that will do the job fine, and here is a bunch from Amazon. Don’t mess around with this, you need them. Â Playing with lasers isn’t worth your sight. Â Oh, and also – you’re not gonna blame it on me if you screw up. Â Play smart.
