Can The World's Most Powerful Flashlight Light My Cigarette?

Among the many wonders at Gizmodo Gallery, we've got a couple Wicked Lasers Torches to play with-the world's most powerful, nearly weapons-grade flashlights that put out light so intense it can burn paper. So when it came time for a cigarette, we knew what to reach for...

Yeah, awesome. Thanks to the Giz reader I bummed a Parliament from, who also got a light. We're of course still going at Giz Gallery day today and through Sunday, so stop by for our rare and wonderful gadgets, challenge us to some Call of Duty 4 on a 103-inch plasma screen, and much more. And don't forget to come have a beer with us tonight at the reader meetup at the bar directly across the street (Annex Bar, 152 Orchard St, 9PM). Because a few rounds of beers + the world's most powerful flashlights + all of our wonderful readers = greatness.
