My My: Guy Builds A 200-Watt Laser Bazooka

This is a video demonstration of the 200-watt laser bazooka built by Youtuber styropyro. It looks like Mace Windu's lightsaber f***ed the sun. And how is this guy still a sighted human being? There is no way I would still be able to see if I was a laser hobbyist. My girlfriend doesn't even let me play with the flashlight because she knows the first thing I'm gonna do is try to stare into it as long as possible. Thankfully she doesn't know the second thing I'm gonna try to do with it, which is hold it behind my nuts to see if I can spot anything in there.

Just to give you an idea of the power that he is harnessing, a typical laser pointer is .005 watts, and even the most most powerful handheld lasers out there are just 3.5 watts.


His bazooka was built from scrap metal, a pile of broken 'hybrid' DLP projectors, and a focusing lens, and it runs on a stack of lithium polymer batteries. He has to wear a specially made welders mask when he uses it because it would basically fry his face and melt his eyes.

I don't really understand watts or volts or amps or any of that because I'm not very smart and the science of electricity and magnets are lost on me, but I did electrocute myself plugging in a 240-volt clothes dryer once and that was terrifying. I woke up on the floor of the laundry room all dazed and confused. That was yesterday, am I going to die?

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Damien, who is going to built a 500-watt laser tank cannon and I am going to straddle it and pretend its my penis because I like to live life to the fullest.

    Almost there...

    Is it actually a laser or just a really high intensity beam of light? I thought most DLP's didn't use lasers.

    Dead Space, here you are.

    Also - needs a second lens on a slide to change focal length. Then destroy that "most balloons popped in a line with laser"

    All I can think is lighting a diesel soaked bon fire with it
