Arctic Laser Popcorn: Overkill Exemplified

So you’ve got a couple of high-powered Arctic Spyder III blue lasers lying around. You’ve got to do something more impressive than aim them at a PowerPoint slideshow with ’em, right? Actually, if you’re not careful, you might burn a hole through the screen if you try that. So why not do something a little more productive, and use them to cook some food. To put a finer point on it, let’s use some lasers to pop some popcorn. Yeah!

That’s exactly what this YouTuber WorldScott did with a pair of these 1000mW, 45-nanometer bad-boys. He perfectly lined up two Spyder III blue beams on a kernel of popcorn, and let it sit there on a turning saucer until the kernel went blammo. All in all, it takes about a minute for a single kernel to pop.

At that rate, he should be able to pop a full bag of Orville Reddenbacher’s in about 2 to 3 hours. Okay, it’s not very efficient, but it sure looks cool.
