Homemade Lightsaber burns through many things

While this laser is not quite as powerful as a Jedi’s Lightsaber it does burn through a whole bunch of stuff.

Here my BEAST 3000mW blue laser goes up against a bunch of flammable stuff. Most things light INSTANTLY when placed in the beam of this laser! This is the most powerful handheld laser that I’ve ever used!

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. I usually try to refrain from using the term “lightsaber” when referring to my lasers but there really isn’t much else out there to describe this laser.

Don’t try this at home.

Millenium Falcon is a PC and a MAC

This Millenium Falcon has both a PC and a MAC inside. Builder Ken Swallow removed the insides of a model ship and replaced them with a Mac Titanium G4 motherboard and a MSI ATX motherboard (PC) while keeping the original sound effects from the toy intact.
