Spyder III most powerful portable consumer laser



It looks like progress for a real life lightsaber is not too far fetched. The company known as Wicked Lasers has been producing high powered laser pointers for a few years, and this new Spyder III Arctic Pro is their most powerful creation ever and yes that is the actual picture of the product.
It looks nasty and in fact it is the most powerful laser on a consumer-grade item. The laser is powered by 445nm blue-laser diodes and it is strong enough to instantly blind someone, and it can sear flesh or other materials at close range.
The company is making it very clear that this is marketed not just as a laser pointer, it is just too dangerous. So they have a lot of restrictions and forms to be filled up when you order one. But why they would sell this to the average joe is beyond me, there are too many things that can go wrong.

You can buy it from their site for US$299, and it comes with safety glasses just so you don't blind yourself (and hopefully don't blind and burn anyone else).

Here is a short video demo of an Arctic prototype model:
