[SIZE=2]Some footage/review of that laser: Wicked Laser Spyder III Arctic: Our First Photos | Maximum PC[/SIZE]

“According to Wicked Laser, the S3 Arctic is equipped with a hardware key lock and a secondary software key input must be performed to power on the device. This safety code is designed to prevent accidental and unauthorized use. Why is that important? Because Wicked Laser states that the S3 Arctic “is the most dangerous laser ever created.” At close range, the Class 4 beam in the S3 Arctic will cause immediate and irreversible retinal damage. It can also burn through clothes and skin.

Even though there are many amazing applications for blue lasers, there isn’t a good reason for the creation of the S3 Arctic. Wicked Lasers offers shipping to “all countries in the world,” and there have been requests for shipment of the S3 Arctic to Saudi Arabia and other Middle Eastern nations. The company believes it is up to local customs authorities to prohibit entry of their products if they are illegal. Some governments, such as the UK and New Zealand, are in the process of modifying regulations to restrict the sale of Class 4 lasers, such as the S3 Arctic, only to research institutes or manufacturing facilities.”

Yep know a few people at my college that bought this laser. Still waiting for it but they wan't to buy a few of then, take them apart, and try to combine the beams into a much more powerful one.

Still there is already a facebook page dedicated to getting this banned here in the USA since anyone could get this and you know kids are going to be pointing this at people from there apartments and blinding people that are just minding there own business.
