A mad genius with the YouTube username WorldScott set up this, uh, experiment? With a hollowed-out flashlight and a laser diode from a Blu-ray burner drive, he zapped a series of 100 balloons lined up in a row, popping them in succession.
It's really, really fun to watch, obviously, and the balloons even make a little patter noise as they pop, bringing to mind a light spring rain falling on a roof, but with lasers.
Fun video! It makes me want to take apart my blue ray, lol!
Kids, this is why you shouldn't point lasers near anyones eyes.
I've read about newer style laser diodes and similar powerful laser diodes like this can be pulled out of Xbox 360 as well.
Super Bloons Tower Defense. Lol
