DIY Build Puts Iron Man-like Laser Blasters in the Palm of Your Hand [Video]

If you found the burning laser project we shared earlier this year entirely too pedestrian then this palm-of-the-hand laser blaster is for you.

In the above video Patrick Priebe demonstrates his build–a very portable and quite clever build that features a 1000mW laser and a back-of-the-hand battery pack. Hit up the link below for more information on the build.
