You can get a real laser weapon and lightsaber now for $299

Postby Scepcop » 15 Dec 2012, 05:32

Check this out. You can get a real life handheld laser now that can burn objects, and a Star Wars type lightsaber, for $299. See the links below to the manufacturer's website, which contain video demonstrations. I've always wanted a laser weapon.

Here are some burning test demonstrations of these lasers:





NBC warns parents not to buy this laser for their kids:

You could burn paper and matches and other little objects. See the demo videos I just embedded above.

LOL at boys with their toys. I can do the same thing with a $2.99 magnifying glass and some free sun. I can only imagine how much the batteries cost for that sucker.

Wow check out these awesome laser burning demonstrations using home made green lasers. I wonder how they make them. How come lasers in real life don't make sounds like they do in the movies? lol

LOL George Lucas should do a scene like that in his next Star Wars movie.

Btw, do you think the technology exists to create hand held laser guns that can do more than burn paper or pop balloons? Can it damage metal like on sci fi movies? If so, I'd like one. I've always wanted a real laser weapon ever since I was a kid. Could an independent laser technician design one?

the guns on star wars seem to shoot bolts of plasma energy that travel incredibly slowly compared to a contemporary ordinary gun, i.e. they can be seen in transit. they also travel a great deal less quickly than the speed of light, unlike an ordinary laser being turned on.

I've often wondered why there are so many homo sapiens a long time ago in a galaxy far far away. given we've evolved from chimps maybe 5M years ago, and homo sapiens is around 200,000 years old, how did these homo sapiens get to a galaxy far far away a long long time ago, given our present level of technology? The nearest galaxy other than our own is like a thousand light years away to begin with. we can't even see how to get to the nearest star system without undertaking interstellar travel for a generation or two. it's hard to retcon this textual slip-up made in the absolute first original star wars movie.

and the evil empire sure recruited a lot of homo sapiens storm troopers as a preference over any other intelligent species in this far off galaxy, although there seemed to be a lot of them about. lots of homo sapiens jedis as well.

Or maybe it's just a silly Hollywood string of movies designed to entertain kids while other kids around the world are starving using kludgy special effects. like the Apollo moon landings.

LOL no wonder why those stormtroopers couldn't hit anything. Yet everyone could hit them because they were so slow in that white armor, which was useless since it could not ward off laser blasts. The logical errors in Star Wars are so numerous. I wonder why Lucas was considered a genius.

Even the phasers in Star Trek move slower than those contemporary laser guns shown above. lol
