How To: Make a Blu-Ray Laser Phaser

Make a Blu-Ray Laser Phaser

Build your very own Trek-style Blu-Ray laser phaser with this hacker's how-to video from Kip Kay of Make Magazine. To replicate this hack at home, you'll need the following materials: (1) a PS3 Blu-Ray laser assembly (which can be had on eBay for roughly $45), (2) an original series-style Star Trek phaser gun (a good quality replica of which can be found for roughly $30), (3) a 9-volt battery, (4) a 9-volt battery snap, (5) a 150 Ohm resistor, and (5) a new switch to replace the phaser trigger. For more information, including detailed, step-by-step instructions on the assembly process, take a look at this instructional video!

lame lame star trek geeks

kinda nerdy, but everyone's got to admit, having a blue laser is pretty cool, I'm just probably gonna find something less nerdy to put it in....no offense

really cool man, I have a blue ray laser diodes from ps3s scraps and now you have given me something to do with it, however I dont plan on using a phase shell, I plan too use a old game gun or air soft gun maybe? ca you attach a micro magnifying glass to the tip like the ones they sell at hobby plastic fabrication stores?

I want to pop a balloon with it

awesome

A dvd burner laser world be awesome to zap people with

AWESOME !

So this is cool...but Star Trek?? Star Wars ftw!

Really Cool....but only if the blue laser is of very low milliwattage. One look into that sucker and maybe bye bye vision....no joke (I'm an optometrist, and optics is my thing)

THATS KIND OF GAY
