The Arctic Spyder III Lightsaber Laser In Action

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.

As many have pointed out, this is an extremely dangerous laser, and since its announcement, Wicked Lasers, the company that manufactures it, has added some safety and training measures requisite for purchase. Our Arctic Spyder III will be arriving any day now for (safe, controlled) testing. Have any ideas for what we should do with this blue beam of terror (in a safe, controlled environment) when it arrives? Let us know in the comments. [Wicked Lasers via Jon Phillips]
