Now this is something that you thought that you'd only see in the movies! The future is now and this 22-year-old laser enthusiast named Drake Anthony shows off his latest gadget, a homemade laser shotgun. It's made up of 8 parallel 5W laser beams totaling to 40 watts of power. According to Drake, "The parallel beams are manipulated with lenses, sort of like how a choke modifies the spread of a shotgun blast."

The massive diode array is powered by a huge lithium polymer battery pack (capable up dumping 250A) and the laser array is regulated by a whopping 24 LM317 drivers. It's powerful enough to burn through a ping pong ball!

Check out this insane laser shotgun!
