It is interesting and humorous how thoughts and opinions differ between men and women on certain topics. Many times there is a black and white line separating their perspectives on some things. In this case, (overly-) powerful handheld lasers... the kind that can pop a balloon from across the room, melt plastic, and need eye [...]

Wicked Lasers LaserSaber Review

wickedlasers_lasersaber-inhand

I like to think of myself as a lightsaber aficionado (aka Star Wars geek), with several dozen Jedi weapons in our home. So, when Wicked Lasers announced their new LaserSaber accessory for their Spyder series, Arctic and Krypton lasers, I instantly got in line for one.

Fellow Star Wars fangirls/boys, we are one step closer to finally getting ourselves an actual lightsaber!  Wicked Lasers has given us the very first "lasersaber" (cough, lightsaber, cough).  The saber attachment  is compatible and fits around  any of their Spyder-3 model lasers.  It's comprised of an aircraft-grade aluminum hilt and 32" polycarbonate blade.  When the saber [...]

wickedlasers_arctics3-1

This past summer there was a great deal of talk of Wicked Lasers producing an insanely powerful, 1 watt blue laser called the S3 (Spyder III Pro) Arctic. It was all over the web from Gizmodo to Squidoo.  They were discussing, not only how extremely cool/dangerous it is but how LucasFilm sent a cease-and-desist letter [...]

At the beginning of the twentieth century, Albert Einstein theorized light could be organized and intensified to emit 'an avalanche' of same-wavelength light. It was this theory that eventually led Theodore Maiman, back in 1960, to create the first laser (Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation).

Khet, a boardgame from Innovention Toys, LLC, combines lasers, Egyptian-themed playing pieces, and chess-like strategy in a two-person game.  Innovention says the game is easy to learn because all pieces move the same way.  Players may move a piece or rotate it up to 90 degrees during a turn.  After each turn, the laser is lighted.  [...]

wickedlaser_disruptor-1

I want to begin this review by stating that the Photonic Disruptor by Wicked Lasers is not a toy. It is a 'laser weapon designed for military and law enforcement use only'. It is a tactical weapon designed to temporarily overwhelm a threat's visual senses without causing permanent eye damage. Wicked Lasers states 'The Photonic [...]
