Star Trek Lives: Make Your Own Phaser!

Are you nuts!? Make your own Phaser from Star Trek? WARNING: You can put an eye out with this thing and it’s not a toy to point at people!!! With that said, one fellow has created his own phaser. He even used the body from a hand held phaser from the original series to plant his laser in! It’s pretty cool to see what someone did, though I will assume this is a bit dangerous and nothing to fool with.

I don’t pretend to know how to build my own phaser, but check out this real time image demonstrating the item:

The article describing it has a few other images. This one shows when the phaser is “armed.”:

I can’t begin to tell you how jealous I am. He has a matching set of really good looking Star Trek phasers!

Have Phaser, Will Travel

Below is a demonstration video that shows the destructive nature of, well, the danger these things present to helpless balloons. Again, not something to point at someone’s face! (OMG! It’s got sound!)

For the technically inclined, the instructions and other details are located at The Laser Pointer forums! Every day, the future that is Star Trek just keeps getting closer and closer. Me, I’m waiting for the day I can “beam” to work and back!
