Geek creates DIY pulse laser pistol that can burn plastic
Well, here's an idea to spend some time on.
This DIY Pulse Laser Gun was built by Patrick Priebe who you might remember from the Iron Man Repulsor Light Laser Glove Project. This is what you get when you convert a ton of energy into light energy in a fraction of a second. Looks fun enough to build but I probably won’t since I would probably end up with a few holes in my hand or something.
*UPDATE* Patrick has been overwhelmed by inquiries about this gun, it takes about 70 hours to make one. He will be making another one for sale but since it isn’t a trivial task it will take a month or two.
“It holds a small pulse laser head, capable of generating a kW-pulse of coherent infra-red light. One shot can punch through a razorblade, plastic, 5mm styrofoam when focussed. Effective range on 3m (dark surfaces)…you will see a stinging flame and a 5mm stain will remain on target. The goal was, to create handheld device…AS COMPACT as possible. Its 320mm long and weights about 2 pounds.
Materials used: Plexi for the center-plate, and brass / aluminum for the casing. Each and every part, handmade…took about 70 hours of work.”

Plastic Repair I just bought a used door panel to replace the one on my Blazer, which looks like new, except that where two screws attach it under the door handle to the door, the plastic is broke out. It had been attached using a couple of flat washers to fill the gap, which I could do also, but I would like...
Magnetic Plastic RAM I am probably not going to get any reply's on this, but a few years ago I saw a show (I think it was either the discovery channel or the history) but they were talking about how they were trying to create magnetic plastic RAM that they could dye with a blue light and it would be more efficient than...
