We recently posted an article about a GE Engineer who said building an actual lightsaber from Star Wars was pretty much impossible. Well, it looks like we are one step closer to the lightsaber becoming a reality with the Spyder III, the world's most powerful portable laser. Seriously! You'll burn your eye out kid, we're way past BB guns now. "Hey mom! I want a Spyder III laser from Santa for Christmas!" One thing you need to know is that this is not a toy, this is a freakin' weapon! It can permanently blind you and set your skin or anything else on fire almost instantly. Here is some information from Wicked Lasers who developed this thing.
This direct blue laser diode is the result of the evolution of laser technology. Less than one year ago, this laser would have cost thousands of dollars to build. Don’t let the Arctic name fool you, this laser possesses the most burning capabilities of any portable laser in existence. That’s why it’s also the most dangerous laser ever created.
Warning: Extremely dangerous is an understatement to the power of 1W of laser power. It will blind permanently and instantly and set fire quickly to skin and other body parts, use with extreme caution and only when using the included eye protection. Customers will be required to completely read and agree to our Class IV Laser Hazard Acknowledgment Form.
Get this, the laser only costs $200 bucks! Of course, Wicked Lasers is throwing in a free pair of safety goggles so you don't set your eyes on fire. Check out the images of the laser below and tell us what ya think!
