Will It Pop?: Firecracker Ignited Inside Balloon With Laser

April 5, 2012


This is a video of Geekologie Reader Scott igniting a firecracker inside a balloon with a laser. Does the balloon pop? YOU'RE GONNA HAVE TO WATCH TO FIND OUT. Ooooooooor just keep reading. Nope!

Hit the jump for the I exploded a firecracker between my teeth one time true story.


Thanks Scott, now do an M-80 inside a douchebag!

  • Holy crap! I think you created the Higgs Boson the nano second after it exploded. I'll need to recheck my calculations.

    yea, it all seems cool, but wait until Dr. Hathaway gets his hands on it....

  • Cool - but can you attach it to a sharks head!!?

    Thank you Geekologie! My video seemed right up your folks' alley!

    Sorta Scott - you're using what looks like a dragonlasers or jetslasers blue laser that you call a 'custom modified flashlight' made into a laser.  Did I read that wrong?  Please correct me if I am.....  I build lasers from flashlights for a living, this doesn't look like anything like someone built from a flashlight, looks more like something from one of the many chinese laser distributer.  Usually wickedlasers takes the cake on posts like this but that's not a WL unit.  Not trying to knock you down man, but that doesn't look like a custom to me.  Just sayin ;)

    It is a custom. It was made for me by an LPF member. It uses a diode harvested from a Casio XJ-140 projector driven with a FlexDrive V5 driver circuit all hosted in a stainless steel LED flashlight body. It doesn't look like other flashlight builds because it also has a custom focus ring. Not sure if trolling.

    Interesting experiment with lazers, balloons, and firecrackers. I would of added glitter just for some razzle dazzle.
