Want to Burn Out Your Friends' Eyeballs? Get the Spyder III Laser Pointer

spyder III
How in the hell is this thing legal? We're a bit confused, because the Spyder III Pro Arctic Series laser pointer is marketed as a "home theater projector" and yet the lightsaber-shaped implement will also set your skin on fire. The manufacturer Wicked Lasers proudly boasts that the Spyder III is "the most dangerous laser ever created," and requires customers to sign a Class IV Laser Hazard Acknowledgment Form. That's even easier than buying a rifle at a gun show.

According to Wicked Lasers' site, "The Artic [sic] emits a 445nm cool blue, ultra high power 1W beam which appears up to [4,000-percent] brighter than the Sonar's 405nm violet beam." In addition, it includes this caveat:
Warning: Extremely dangerous is an understatement to the power of 1W of laser power. It will blind permanently and instantly and set fire quickly to skin and other body parts, use with extreme caution and only when using the included eye protection. [sic]

For only $200 you can get your hands on your very own laser scalpel! As if laser pointers weren't aggravating enough for airplanes, cats and movie theaters, now you can permanently blind and scar your friends with one, too. But kids, for the love of God or midichlorians or whatever rules your universe, please do not buy this horrible thing. [From: Wicked Lasers, via: DVICE]
