please-ive-been-good.jpg

If you haven't already heard, Wicked Lasers is selling a $200 1W blue laser that doesn't only look cool, it is cool. And by cool I mean 'powerful enough to set your f***ing skin ablaze'.

The Artic emits a 445nm cool blue, ultra high power 1W beam which appears up to 4000% brighter than the Sonar's 405nm violet beam. This direct blue laser diode is the result of the evolution of laser technology. Less than one year ago, this laser would have cost thousands of dollars to build.


Warning: Extremely dangerous is an understatement to 1W of laser power.Extremely dangerous is an understatement to the power of 1W of laser power. It will blind permanently and instantly and set fire quickly to skin and other body parts.". Customers will be required to completely read and agree to our Class 4 Laser Hazard Acknowledgment Form..

I wrote the company over the weekend asking to get my hands on one, but I haven't heard back yet so I can only assume they didn't take my whole "I'm a total professional" bit too seriously. Which -- you can't smell booze through an email, right? Joking, I'm not stupid. (what about instant messenger?)
