A Homemade Lightsaber That Really Works [Video]

This lightsaber won’t exactly cut through the bulkhead of a ship, but it will set paper on fire and even burn a hole through a ping pong ball. Styropyro built it himself and tested all sorts of objects to see how they’d fare and we get to see the flaming results.

Here my BEAST 3000mW blue laser goes up against a bunch of flammable stuff. Most things light INSTANTLY when placed in the beam of this laser! This is the most powerful handheld laser that I’ve ever used!

This laser uses the new 9mm 450nm laser diode and runs on two 18650 Li Ion batteries. The housing is a custom machined “Sirius” host. I usually try to refrain from using the term “lightsaber” when referring to my lasers but there really isn’t much else out there to describe this laser.

To be honest I don’t even like handheld lasers this strong, but I knew by subscribers would like this! This laser is legal to own in the US, and I wore goggles while shooting this video.

It’s legal for now, but once the Jedi Council gets wind of this guy, there’s going to be trouble.

See video of the lightsaber in action after the break…
