Guy builds cool balloon-destroying laser from hollowed-out flashlight and a laser diode from a Blu-ray burner drive.
I gotta get me one of those…
You don’t even need a blu-ray drive, though that makes for a neater color. Just tear apart an old CD writer.
That last shot on camera was a little too close for comfort for me, if it had been the cameraman’s eye in line with the laser beam his retina could have gone permanently ‘puff’ also, not so cool, so pls be careful Nick.
“Class 3B lasers are used inside CD and DVD writers, although the writer
unit itself is class 1 because the laser light cannot leave the unit.”
