Watch This DIY Death Star Melt Metal With Its 84 Watt Laser [Video]

1

Patrick Priebe decided to create his ideal Death Star replica using a beach ball covered with layers of fiberglass and aluminum panels. However, what pushes this example over the top is its reflector, which is represented by a 84-watt laser.

The laser is made up of 14 six-watt blue lasers that were painstakingly adjusted so they would collectively focus on a single spot. The result is a $4,500 DIY project that can’t destroy planets, but definitely can melt metal and probably burn your house to the ground.
