by Mark R

Look, up in the sky, is it a bird, is it a plane? No, it’s the RcSuperhero! Seriously, if I saw a man-sized figure flying through the sky, I might think that I was looking at a real superhero.

DIY Pulse Laser Gun looks like it was sent from the future

by Mark R

This Pulse Laser Gun may look like it is from the future, but believe me, it was just recently made. The gun was a DIY project that has a small pulse laser head and generates a kW-pulse of infrared light. There is a video below of it shooting a balloon, but it can blast through plastic, razorblade, and even 5mm of Styrofoam. It has a range a 3 meters, and …
