A National Institute of Standards and Technology study found that most laser pointers are illegal.

The spaceship is about the same size across as a strand of your hair, and it was 3D printed by lasers in less than one minute.
Thank you, DARPA, for preserving our faith in the awesomeness of the future by deciding that 2014 will be the year to equip combat aircraft with frikkin' lasers.
Bigger images, better galleries, a complete mobile experience and a whole lot more.
Corning’s new USB cables involve lasers (of course), but lasers that somehow won't cost you any more than a regular USB cable.
Unless you live right next to an active volcano, and in some cases even if you live right next to an active volcano, tapping Earth's nearly limitless amount of geothermal power is not easy. You usually have to drill through...
The National Ignition Facility at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California is home to the most powerful laser on the planet. It was intended to be developed into humanity's first break-even fusion generator, but it hasn't happened yet, and the new plan is to slow down the pace of fusion research. Again.
We know, the fact that the largest and most powerful laser in the world is now being used for weapons research might not, at first glance, sound like a bad thing. But it is, for two reasons: first, this laser used to be trying to figure out how to make fusion happen, and second, the weapons research does not involve turning it into a laser cannon.
Lasers are the future. Of everything. From food to medicine to rainbows, lasers can do it all. As every science fiction movie ever will attest to, the absolute coolest thing that lasers can do, of course, is blow stuff up, and this is why Boeing is making a truck into a mobile laser weapon system.
