Attacknid Becomes Laser Death Drone

Laser Drone

[styroPyro] liked his Attacknid, but decided it needed just a bit more blue death ray laser. We’ve seen [styroPyro’s] high-powered laser hacks before, but this time he’s taken to hacking one of [Jaimie Mantzel’s] Attacknid robots. According to one of the top comments on [styroPyro’s] video—a comment by Attacknid inventor [Jaimie] himself—the robots were meant to be hacked, and [Jamie] is ecstatic.

[styropyro] removed the disk shooter from his Attacknid and used the fire control circuit to activate a 2 watt blue laser. A low powered, red laser pointer serves as a laser sight, allowing you to aim at your target before unleashing the beefy blue laser. As the video shows, 2 watts is a heck of a lot of power. The Attacknid easily pops balloons and sets fire to flash paper. As usual, we urge you to use caution when handling 2 watt lasers, which fall under Class 4: aka the most dangerous class of lasers. Goggles, skin protection, and safety interlocks are the order of the day. [styroPyro] has been working with high power lasers for a few years, and seems to know what he’s doing. That said, we’ll leave the burning lasers to the professionals.

      1. can you cite a single instance of this ever happening? of course not because a pilot has never been blinded by a laser. also the beam will spread out and it’s intensity will be severely decreased.

          1. @Matt your wrong. Blinded as in flash blindness not as never seeing again. Getting flashed by a laser will also take away your night vision if nothing else.
            AKA it is dangerous, illegal, and frankly stupid. Since it is dangerous to other people and has no benefit it is the a fine law even by libertarian standards.

        1. It is not the possibility of blinding a pilot but the distraction and resultant confusion it causes during a time where the utmost focus is needed to ensure pilot/passenger safety. A person that aims a laser at an aircraft has established themselves as a moron incapable of realizing that the possible result of human fatality far outweighs the fun intended .

    1. My kitcher floor has the melted imprint of a engine rocker cover. Dropped whilst taking out of the oven. Retained heat better than the welding gloves did.

      Once you drop it, picking it up immediately aint gonna matter :)
