Wicked Lasers has created something that will change Star Wars fandom forever. An actual lightsaber. The Spyder III is allegedly the most dangerous laser ever created, able to not only blind those who look at it, but it actually has the capability to burn flesh almost instantly. Yeah, this portable lightsaber is an actual weapon. A pretty blue one, just like Luke’s. Okay… the greatest part about this is that it is available in the consumer market- yes, anyone can buy this laser for just a mere 200 dollars. According to the website, your purchase includes a free pair of safety goggles. Woohoo! Here is the warning label on the website:
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. Customers will be required to completely read and agree to our Class IV Laser Hazard Acknowledgment Form.
I almost wish Gizmodo didn’t have this on their website. Let’s not spread the word too far on something that causes permanent blindness and a high likelihood of burning flesh for less than the price of a one way airplane ticket.
