It Was Only A Matter Of Time: Six-Laser Rotating Minigun

July 8, 2013


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 functionality people care about anyways. You know what I want? A laser cannon WITH A SOLID BEAM AS THICK AS MY ARM. Now that would be something. Hopefully something that could burn holes straight through my enemies. I heard from a reliable source that forensic experts are still in the dark when it comes to laser wounds. Okay so I made that up, but it's gotta be true. And if the cops do come looking for you just blame it on aliens. 'We don't even have that kind of technology on earth!' I imagine myself saying while trying to hide the Mega Man blaster behind my back.

Hit the jump for a video of the laser being demoed, with bonus balloon popping footage at the end.

Thanks to Charles Vondoom, who's clearly a supervillain.

    We need to put in a gun in these and put them on the battlefield so it scares the crap out of our enemies. It'd be for show but it would terrorize them!

    Will come in handy when we are attacked by a race of balloon aliens

    Does this remind anyone else of Honey I Shrunk The Kids?

    All that work to make it rotate and when he demoed it to pop the spinning at all?

  • Charles Whelan

    Ha! I didn't even notice..

    I bet they did a first run with it spinning and it didn't pop any balloons because the laser was not focused in one spot long enough...

  • Charles Whelan

    This would have been really sweet if it has a distance finder and could articulate the 6 beams to overlap at the would have been much more powerful than 6 beams spinning all over the place

  • Charles Whelan

    All that the laser sight indicates is where the minigun will not hit ...

    Why not put the laser sight in the center of the rotating lasers??

  • Kevin Anthony

    it would be much cooler if it only fired when the laser was at 12 o'clock

  • Phillip Gockel

    Isn't this just called a circular saw?

  • Bro, do you even troll?!
