Sith Series Laser: Double the Laser, Double the Danger, Double the Lawsuits
May 6th, 2011
Wicked Lasers nearly got burned by Lucasfilm because one of their lasers looked a lot like a lightsaber. It seems that they got the upper hand in that legal battle, and now they’re tempting fate again with the Sith Series laser, the “world’s first double handed laser”, a device as jaw-dropping as it is impractical.
The Sith Series (sheesh, might as well change their name to Lucas Lasers) is made of two Class 4 1-watt Spyder 3 lasers – the same lightsaber-ish laser that got them a cease-and-desist letter from Lucasfilm. You can use each end separately or go Darth Maul on your Powerpoint and hold two presentations at once. Seriously though this thing is very dangerous. Both a direct hit or a reflected beam can result in permanent blindness, cause dark surfaces to catch on fire and may ignite skin, hair or clothing. Yikes. That’s why buyers will be required to
apprentice under a Sith Lord review Wicked Lasers’ safety training video and pass a Laser Safety Test.
The Sith Series double handed laser can be ordered at Wicked Lasers’ website for $600 (USD). Let’s be honest – even if we all had $600 to spare most of us don’t need a laser, let alone a two-headed one. Still, I’m sure some nerd out there can wrangle a couple of legitimate excuses to possess such an amazing tool, so I’ll just wait for the cool videos of their projects and exploits. Wicked Lasers, you wicked.
