Lightsabres For Everyone
It’s something that all hospitals have been dreading for years – the first commerically available lightsabre has just been released. But before fans attempt to recreate a “Star Wars Kid” moment, they should be warned that the Spyder III Pro Arctic is not designed to be used as a toy and is extremely deadly in the hands of non-Jedis.
The 1 watt device is said to be the world’s most powerful portable laser and has a blue ray which is 1,000 times stronger than sunlight on skin.
In possibly the best press release ever, manufacturer Wicker Lasers states, “It will blind permanently and instantly and set fire quickly to skin and other body parts – use with extreme cautuion and only when using enclosed eye protection”.
We checked it out and sorry to disappoint but it doesn’t appear to be able to sever limbs or even make that cool “wom” noise; it looks more like a really nasty laser pointer. Still, if you’ve ever wanted to blind your friends, now’s the time to do it.
