Our tenth grade Physics teacher had one of those.

It was about the dimensions of a DuraFlame Log. Looked like a long electric pencil sharpener.

With the lights off he made a glowing dot dance about on the rooms blackout curtains.

That was a BIG deal at the time. Now you can get a six dollar laser as a cat toy.
Rather than just bouncing the dot around on the wall. He used cigarette smoke to enable us to see the actual beam. We all thought that Mr. Joseph was pretty cool, sported a beard and road a motorcycle to school.

Naaaw , I'm waiting on the phased plasma rifle in the 40 watt range, then I'll get my cash out.

If we gonna talk Terminator weaponry, I want that really big huge ass laser cannon they were using in the start of the movie on the robots. THAT would be worth an article in the paper over.

I want to test it on ANITFA. I think in the US we should be testing a downsized version of that HUMVEE mounted riot dispersal energy weapon.

Imagine ANTIFA at one of their "protest" and they see a group of Marvin the Martians coming down towards them with something like those Chinese energy carbines in hand. They would be like,"Cool, cosplay joining us!" Then, ZAP!

Heck, maybe tell Wiley that those guys in black are all roadrunners in disguise and for once, let him win.

There are 16 old school available and no tax stamp necessary.

That new China gun also comes with a hover board and a fire extinguisher or three. Maybe they inhaled too much Lithium during R&D.

Yes it cannot be seen by human eyes.

Many uses of infrared have a visible beam operating at the same time to try and provide some warning to technicians.
Like fiber optic communications systems.
If you see a flash of red something has really gone wrong.
Hopefully your protective glasses are adequate.

It is often close enough to visible light to be focused partly by our eyes.
The tiny spot on the retina damages it nearly instantly.

The problem with laser 'guns' is that it takes an enormous amount of energy (amp-hours) to operate a laser.
Lasing is often a very high voltage (a couple of tens of thousands of volts in gas systems), very large currents in solid state lasers (and the requirement to keep them from overheating and burning out), or highly reactive gases to supply the energy (like fluorine).

USMMguy------ Wow, your experience & teacher was a lot like mine. Mr. Soule used the smoke machine in his home-built R2D2 Droid to exhibit the beam.

He had a restored WW2 Jeep that sported a home-built fake M2 for it, for parades. He lived in an A Frame house that I think he made from a kit.

A vet from the Pacific Theater. I guess everyone has a favorite teacher.

As for mobs, it's not suitable to use a laser for crowd control as people could get blinded. The lawyers would be thrilled to have State-Blinded clients.

I'm more into fielding an army of trained skunks

There was an interesting laser weapon laser proposed that didn't use the beam itself as a weapon, but used the beam as an ionized conduit for high voltage current. Basically a long range taser.

A handheld solid state laser can burn at relatively short distances, but the beam divergence rapidly limits their range.

How steady can you hold the laser? How steady will the target remain? Just look at a Crimson Trace's dance 20 yards away...

Ultimately, a laser needs time to act, so the farther away the target is, the less efficient it is: less and less time on target, wider beam, less energy dumped on a precise area.

I don't see it overtaking stone-throwing technology on a large scale anytime soon...

That's why Hans Solo carried a Mauser Broomhandle.

Meh. It's no plasma rifle in the 40 watt range.

For those who think it is cute to quote a movie line, a 40 watt emitter, held on target for a full second, would deliver 30 foot pounds of energy. About like a .22 CB Cap.

meh twinkle lights.... meh.

Now say a 30-06 or .308 Winchester to someones head or chest at 1/2 mile has wonderful impact on the receiving end. Especially if you used an expanding bullet.

Green lasers are highly visible to the naked eye.

Red ones....not so much.

Aw, come on into the Twenty-First century, shaver.

A pocket sized 1/2 watt laser will blind you instantly -
even just reflections will burn retinas.
Permanatly.


And it can disable a whole bunch of people with one wave.

Not as exciting as 30-06 recoil, of course.
But just as effective. Maybe more so.

Easily concealed and deadly silent.

Good luck trying to hit a man sized target with a .308.

A half a mile away, it aint going to happen.
