    Compulsive measurers rejoice! “The world’s first dimensioning instrument” is now here, and it’s small enough to fit in your pocket, as well as multi-functional enough to justify carrying it with you pretty much anywhere you go.

    Wicked Lasers Flashtorch Mini: Strong Enough to Light Fires

    As the song goes, “someone like you should not be allowed to start any fires.” That was in reference to an individual person, but it could also be applied to flashlights, particularly the Wicked Lasers Flashtorch Mini, which burns brightly and powerfully enough to start fires, whether it should be allowed to or not—and in a […]

    P-Laser: Watch a High-Powered Cleaning Laser in Action (Video)

    If you’ve ever had a truly heavy-duty cleaning job in front of you, you’ve probably fantasized about turning on some giant laser and getting it done the easy way.

    Drake Anthony, aka styropyro, is a man who specializes in constructing elaborate laser weapons and other exotic devices in his garage (hey, everybody has to have a hobby).

    Skarp Laser Razor: Shave With A Real Laser

    It’s been almost two years since this “laser-guided razor” was written about in these pages, and back then I remember having the obvious thought that it would be even cooler if you could actually shave with a laser, rather than just guiding a conventional razor with one. At that time I didn’t even know such […]

    Lockheed Martin Tests Laser Weapon, Disables Truck From a Mile Away

    When I was a little kid, I was obsessed with laser guns – they always seemed much cooler to me than their real-world, kind of depressing bullet-firing counterparts, and anything from Star Wars was automatically cool anyway. So my childhood self is pretty pleased with the recent news that Lockheed Martin has successfully disabled a truck with a […]

  • LaserWatch: A Wristwatch With A Real Laser (Video)

    LaserWatch: A Wristwatch With A Real Laser (Video)

    Let me make something crystal clear right off the bat: This isn’t about some watch with a laser pointer built in. I’m talking about an actual 1,500-milliwatt laser beam that can pop balloons and cut through plastic. It’s the creation of Patrick Priebe, who has dubbed his invention the LaserWatch. While the LaserWatch can’t cut […]
