In a very special episode of Toy Time, I demonstrate why there is absolutely no reason to have a 1.4 watt laser sitting around on the desk of an easily bored person.
A Wicked Lasers product has long been the closest you can get to a real-life lightsaber, but there are some Jedi weapons better left on the screen. If the tri-blade lightsaber revealed in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser has caught your eye, and safety isn't your utmost concern, with the help of a 3D printer…
There's really no practical reason anyone needs to own a high-powered green laser pointer (sorry stargazers, not buying it) but that doesn't make them any less desirable. Especially now that Wicked Lasers has just revealed the Evo which can be customized and controlled via an app on your Android or iOS smartphone.
Wicked Lasers has made a name for itself by building incredibly powerful handheld lasers that it's still legally able to sell to the public. At the top of the heap is the Wicked Lasers Arctic which blasts forth a full watt of focused blue light. But when you tire of getting in trouble with the FAA you can now easily …
It's no secret we think Wicked Lasers are wicked cool here at Gizmodo. The problem is that they're always a luxury; never a necessity. Sure, it would be really awesome to play with the LaserSaber, but nobody's head is going to pop if they don't (some balloons might, though.) But that's also what makes a super-powerful…
We've made fun in past of Wicked Lasers and their vast inventory of seemingly useless laser devices. Now, at long last, it seems we've found a legitimate excuse for playing with out lasers.
Watching thousands upon thousands of dominos fall in series just doesn't excite us like it used to. OK, it was never really that exciting. So we're hoping the next fad has people using high-powered lasers to pop balloons like this record-setting run.
What the hell? Wicked Lasers has actually made a lightsaber. I mean, not one that can cut you in half, but one that looks and acts like the actual Jedi weapon! At least, that's what they claim:
You know what Future? You can keep your flying cars and ray guns and sex bots (actually, scratch those last two) because the future that 1997 promised me is finally, actually happening. That's right—sharks with frickin' laser beams attached to their heads.
Laser lovers everywhere will delight in the knowledge that the world's #1 bestselling laser company, Wicked Lasers, has developed yet another laser with which to do their unspecified lasery things.
It's only human to want to destroy beautiful things. We smash temples, palaces, vases—sometimes you just need to let loose. Now, here's an iPad being lasered and torched into a flaming heap.
Every year laser pointers get brighter and cheaper, and every year the number of incidents involving some bozo shining one at an aircraft increases. In 2005 there were just 283 reports, but that number has increased every year, hitting an astonishing 2,836 in 2010. So the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has set…
In honor of May the Fourth (be with you), the real-life lightsaber has gone over to the dark side. The special "Sith Series" edition of the Spyder III, available now as an actual thing you can buy and use and burn things with, combines two Spyder III portable lasers locked together at the boring end by a Spyder…
When we heard about Wicked Lasers' Spyder III Pro Arctic laser, an ultra powerful portable laser with a lightsaberesque design selling for only $200, it almost seemed too good to be true. Turns out it might have been.
When we first heard of the eyeball-blinding, skin-scorching capabilities of the Spyder III Arctic, the world's most powerful portable laser, I wasn't necessarily convinced it was all it was cracked up to be. This video confirms: crazily, terrifyingly powerful.
Built with the blue-laser diode of a dismantled Casio projector, the $200 Spyder III Pro Arctic is the world's most powerful portable laser. It can permanently blind you and set your skin—or anything else, really—on fire almost instantly.
