How to Turn a Flashlight Into a Laser (Video)
If you have an abundance of flashlights and a dearth of futuristic armaments in your house, then you'll want to take a look at what the weaponry wizards over at TechEBlog.com and Kipkay.com have for you. Without revealing whether the blueprints came from 'The A-Team' or 'MacGyver,' the video on Kipkay.com provides step-by-step instructions for converting a "regular mini-mag flashlight into a powerful burning laser." Requiring only the flashlight, a DVD burner, an Aixiz laser housing, a soldering iron, and a drill, the final product generates a laser, as demonstrated in the video, powerful enough to light a match or pop a balloon.
There is one negative, though. The how-to doesn't address how we're supposed to attach the finished laser to the head of a shark. Sorry, but we just couldn't help ourselves. Check out the video after the break. [From: Kipkay via TechEBlog]
