It's like owning a Ferrari... You can drive it, though, it's not legal to drive it the way it was built for... But it's still fun to press the accelerator from time to time!

A more proper analogy is it's legal to do anything as long as you don't run anyone over.

(In both cases, they probably can't fight back because they're either dead or blind. I'm just sayin'.)

If you go to the wickedlasers site and under choose model for the spyder
III pro.
So the cheap one is not really that good ?



Edit..I am looking at the wrong model...should be the spyder
III pro arctic.
Still, how can a similar model cost almost 3 grand for a 500mw and $200 for the other 500mw

From the limited stuff I know about lasers, Green ones are harder/more expensive to manufacture.

Um. I don't mean to be the bearer of bad news, but I bet these get banned almost immediately. These are an arsonist's greatest dream; you could set fire to a building in a matter of seconds simply by standing outside it and pointing something through a window. And it would be untraceable, with no catalysts or unburnt matches to find.

This thing should really be treated with the same respect as a gun, not fooled around with by tech enthusiasts
He makes a very excellent point on the whole arsonist thing....

I think it would be rather difficult to start any major fires with it at any decent range. You'd either need to be very close, or have something highly combustible like paper or gasoline nearby to get it started. It's not like you can just point it at the wall or floor for a few seconds and WOOSH! flames.

My order just went through, so I'll confirm/disprove this (carefully) when it arrives.
