DIY 7W Laser Lightsaber: The Force Ablindens

by Lambert Varias

Laser enthusiast Styropyro saw Allen Pan’s blowtorch lightsaber and decided to outshine it by making his own energy blade. It’s as scary as you think.

Styropyro used a Nichia Gallium (III) Nitride laser to make his lightsaber. He didn’t say what the laser’s original power output was, just that he increased it to 7W using a pair of buck drivers in parallel. While we’ve seen him handle a 40W laser before, but this one is no joke either.

In case you didn’t catch that, he said he’s going to make a 160W laser bazooka. May your eyesight always be with you dude.
