My error. Sorry.
This is a discussion on Conceal Carry lightsaber (High powered portable laser... whoah) within the Defensive Knives & Other Weapons forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; My error. Sorry....
Im still trying to figure out a practical application for a consumer laser like this?

As a pilot, I absolutely hate these scientific lasers. IMO, lasers of this nature should have to be registered with some sort of state or local authority. Too often, we have instances of idiots with these powerful green lasers illuminating aircraft, and it would be a lot nicer if it were easier to have them dealt with.

MUST GET LASER... MUST NOT HUMP IT!!
Ha! The real question here is if it cuts cheese.
And no, its not a real light saber. Light sabers are accelerated photon repeaters. By bouncing the laser back and forth between its point reflector and the hilt the wavelengths are compressed giving it that classic jedi cut through anything power. The trick in engineering is to find a way to float the reflector point at 3 or 4ft from the hilt. Super cooled gas is the most obvious solution, and lasers can direct liquid nitrogen, but not in that accuracy currently. That still doesn't solve the reflector problem, and in failure the amount of radiation generated by an unstable photon dwarfs all nuclear, atomic, and meteoroid destructive power that this planet has seen in its 4 billion years. (Yes the planet is 4 billion years old get over it) It should however be able to operate with a relatively anemic power source, you know, like....Asia. But depending on the reflector, you might be able to get it started with a 9volt. And if that were the case and it took 900 years to become a true light saber, isn't that so much more jedi?
Has anyone been able to find a single legitimate video of this laser in action? I can't find anything on YouTube.
