Wicked Lasers Releases Dangerously Awesome LaserSaber

 

Wicked Lasers LaserSaber modeled after the Star Wars lightsaber

If this wasn't just a picture, you might be blind just by looking at this.

Remember these guys?  Wicked Lasers is a company that makes high-powered lasers.  And I don’t mean like these-things-can-blind-you powerful.  I mean like these-fuckers-can-light-fires-and-shit powerful.

Yesterday, in honor of Star Wars Day, they announced that they’ve made a product to use their crazy laser technology and harness it to appear like a Star Wars lightsaber.

Hm… dangerous lasers + awesome weapon appearances + nerds… on a disaster scale of 1-10, this is Order 66.

Check out this video to see it in action.

So the LaserSaber is actually an attachment that you put on a different Wicked Lasers product and it uses that laser to illuminate the shaft of your “lightsaber.”  I won’t be completely blown away until someone makes an actual laser that is truly self-contained with no physical shaft.

But can we take a moment to appreciate how ridiculously dangerous this thing is?  I mean, they don’t try to hide it in their video.  In fact, I’m fairly certain they’re required to include all of these warnings in their promotional materials…

…The world’s most powerful lasers you can legally own.

These are not toys.

High-powered lasers of any kind can have devastating consequences if used improperly.

Due to the extreme powers of the Spyder III, only operate while wearing laser shades in a controlled environment.

Do not participate in any form of fencing or swordplay, as it will cause serious damage to people, pets, or property.

Can somebody please tell me how these things are legal?  Against my better judgement, here is a link to the Wicked Lasers website in case you want to learn more, or (Yoda forbid) even purchase one.  Just remember that I was the one who told you of this awesome laser sword.  I hope you will find it in your midi-chlorians to spare me when you go on your genocidal rampage.

Thanks to TechCrunch for sharing.
