The home-made 200W laser bazooka

YouTuber Styropyro has taken his love of lasers to the next level and built a 200W “laser bazooka”.

The hobbyist is not new to lasers, and has also built a laser shotgun.

For the bazooka, he used scrap metal and four 50W diode banks that he harvested from DLP projectors.

He warns on several occasions that this laser is extremely dangerous.

“In fact, a direct hit to the eyes would be 33 million times more intense than staring into the sun,” he said.

Watch the gun in action below.
