Hundreds Of Balloons Fall Victim to a Giant Laser

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.

The laser in this video, not surprisingly, comes courteous of Wicked Lasers. Specifically, its 1W Spyder III Krypton which blasts through these specially weighted balloons like they were... well... inflated balloons. But it's still fun to watch it tearing through 100 of them one after the other. And maybe next time they can fill the balloons with something more volatile than just air. [YouTube via Geekologie]

Why did it speed up in the middle?
