DVD Burner Laser Gun
TruTV asked Sidecar Lab to design a laser gun out of common off the shelf components. Using a blue ray DVD burner we built a 0.5 Watt laser gun capable of incinerating an array of things. The laser driver, power supply, and control circuitry were designed to fit inside an off the shelf Nerf gun. The gun was able to ignite items from as far as 30 feet away.
