Don't You Point That Thing At Me!: DIY Pulse Laser Can Burn Through Plastic, Metal
This is a homemade pulse laser gun built by Patrick Priebe. The thing packs a 1-kW burst that can burn through plastic, foam and thin metals. Plus explode eyeballs. Just kidding, I don't actually know that for a fact, I'm just assuming. Although I do encourage Patrick to make a trip to his local butcher to find out. And I'm not just saying that because I want him to pick up some pork chops for dinner tonight, because I don't. I told you, I'm vegetarian. Or am I? Yes, I am. The bacon is a lie. Awh shit -- Portal 2 spoiler!
Hit the jump for a worthwhile video of the pews in action.
Thanks to venort, Rob, Cathie, tiki-tom and Jude, who don't need pulse-laser guns because they stole a bunch of the rifles from their local lasertag place. You, uh, do know those things are just glorified flashlights, right?
