    Seen here about to fill the back of his pants with regret, a volunteer prepares to be tazed by the CUPID hexacopter. The CUPID has an 80,000-volt taser on board with a laser sight to make sure it shoots you right in the eyeballs. Pfft, I've been hit with 80,000 volts before a... / Continue →

    Because what fun is shaving a penis into the beard of a passed out friend if everybody's going to mistake it for a rocketship, Phillips has just announced the first beard trimmer with a laser guide: the Phillips Beard Trimmer 9000. That's right -- the 9000. I generally prefer... / Continue →

    This is a short video of a Wicked Lasers Spyder III 3 Arctic laser with a perpendicular plane lens and a Krypton laser with a star lens making some sort of trippy moving starfield in the smoke of a campfire. I really felt like I was traveling through outerspace. Still, what go... / Continue →

    Picture related: frozen light. Zing! NOW COME TEAR MY HEART OUT NO MERCY STYLE. German researchers have successfully "frozen" light for an entire minute, which apparently means great things for the future of "light-based quantum memory" and other things my brain refuses to b... / Continue →

    This is the six-laser spinning minigun built by Patrick Priebe (of Iron Man laser gauntlet fame). It has six rotating 1W blue lasers and a 100mW green laser for aiming. It doesn't really have a lot of functionality besides looking cool, but that's pretty much all the function... / Continue →

    This is a video of laser lover and Youtuber AnselmoFanZero showing off the Dead Space plasma cutter replica he made. For the record, I've never played Dead Space because it's rated M for Mature and my mom says I'm anything but. Still, a pretty impressive build and the lasers ... / Continue →

    This is a video from laser lover (and possible balloon hater) Scott Stevenson popping 100 balloon with a powerful burning purple laser. You may remember the previous video from Scott where he did the same trick except the laser was green and the balloons were red. That made f... / Continue →

    This is the homemade laser blaster Iron Man gauntlet crafted by laser lover Patrick Priebe. I don't know about you, but I would totally wear that. Probably to school and get suspended. Full metal gauntlet, runs on 1x 18650 plus 2x 14500 Li Ion cells. 2 blue lasers on board, ... / Continue →

    Mad scientists at the army's Picatinny Arsenal have developed a weapon that can shoot lightning bolts down laser beams to fry electronics and detonate explosives. But can it cook a hotdog? "Air is composed of neutral molecules and is an insulator," Fischer said. When lightnin... / Continue →

    This is a LEGO Star Wars toy display with some holographic video effects. Do they have them at Toys R Us? No clue, I got banned from the nearest one for bicycle jousting in the store. Dammit, I was gonna buy something! No I wasn't. I was gonna peg my friend with a dodgebal... / Continue →

    To celebrate getting a certain amount of Facebook fans in a certain amount of time, Wicked Lasers promised laser fanatics they'd attach a laser to a shark. And this is it. A lemon shark with a 50mW green laser attached to its dorsal fin. When reached for comment, King Neptun... / Continue →

    God I love electronic fumes. Because apparently the new iPad isn't good for anything but being destroyed in Youtube videos, here's one from Wicked Lasers showing their Krypton and Arctic lasers and a couple Torch flashlights combining their powers to set one on fire. It serve... / Continue →

    A newly developed x-ray laser at the SLAC National Acceleration Laboratory has been able to produce temperatures as hot as 3.6-million degrees Fahrenheit, or, in layman's terms, really f***ing toasty. Definitely not the kind of laser you'd want to jokingly wave your hand in fr... / Continue →

    Seen here giving the camera their best serious but cool, MIT researchers Andreas Velten and Ramesh Raskar pose in front of a Coke bottle filled with highlighter fluid or something. I don't know, physics and I don't always get along. That's how I'm able to levitate. Just kidd... / Continue →

    A new anti-riot laser rifle capable of producing a 3-meter (~10-ft) wall of temporarily-blinding light is set to be tested by British police forces in the coming months. If successful, rioting will become a thing of the past. Just kidding, but anarchy will require specialized... / Continue →

    This is a video of a new 3-D laser display that can "print" 3-D images IN MIDAIR. How? Magic. I know I say that a lot, but I'm actually 99% certain this time. The system has a framerate of just 10-15 FPS right now, although the company is working on bumping that up to 24-30... / Continue →

    First of all, it's not really a traditional tractor beam. Not that there even IS a traditional tractor beam, because fully functional tractor beams don't exist. It's just not the kind of tractor beam you may have seen in Star Tracks before. And yes, I did use that 'beam me u... / Continue →

    Lasers: they can blind you. But that's not all, they can also do other things. Perform in laser light shows? Check. Drive a cat wild? BIG CHECK. Be pointed at things during a presentation? Yeaaaah buddy! Replace traditional (tungsten-halogen) and modern (Xenon/LED) head... / Continue →

    Smooth move Cyclops, now the building's on fire. Because what good is science if we can't all shoot lasers out of our eyeballs and take staring contests to a whole new level, researchers have successfully spliced jellyfish DNA into human cells, allowing them to produce biologi... / Continue →

    Note: Worthwhile higher-res version HERE because justice is a dish best served...larger? *pounding cheeseburgers* This is a scene from Pac-Man recreated with lights and lasers and an open camera shutter by photographer Michael Bosanko. Pretty cute, right? Pac-Man is all, "I'... / Continue →
