I can't wait to buy one of these and of course there will be some mods. Can you say Home Defence System?

a laser 1:100 of the power can blind you almost instantly. This will cause burns to your skin.

The video description is the best

Ok, I take it back. We should be 'cautious' when using the laser but that doesn't mean it's not awesome. You have to admit there are a lot of possibilities with this type of tech.

A 1W 445 nm laser may not be a good idea for shooting down mosquitoes in a public area but it can do a lot of good and we're only a few steps away from having our light sabers. Very Happy

More like phasers. Lightsabers would require cleverly contained plasma arcs.

I bet at one point or another, we all fantasized about having a light saber like luke skywalker or at least han solo's blaster right? Well now you can buy a real blaster for only 2 grand!

Apparently it has a power cell that is good for 150 shots at full power, and, with a focusing lens can 'burn hot enough to make air explode at the focus point. That's right: They can kill the air itself.' -Cracked.com

Pretty nice, I bet with a little work someone could make a fairly decent CNC laser cutter using one of those.

during the equinox, you can stand an egg up on end, and it will not fall over...only a couple of days left to try it.

Any other time of the year, it will fall over...

Urban Legend. Just hold it steady with the point facing up for a little bit (30 seconds is probably more than enough) and the yolk will descend, dropping the center of gravity and rendering it stable enough to stay standing.
