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

By Jason Fitzpatrick on July 19th, 2011

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.

Modifying blue lasers to light matches and pop balloons is pretty neat. Modifying blue lasers to fit in a palm-mounted brace for Iron Man style laser blasting is pretty awesome. 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.

Jason Fitzpatrick is a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to. If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.
