German inventor Patrick Priebe has just fulfilled many people’s dreams: he’s invented a gizmo that turns him into James Bond, at least for a little while. The guy actually made a working laser watch that blows stuff up (alas, it can’t make a martini, not yet anyway). I don’t think I need to state how cool that is.
Priebe has a substantial background for this sort of thing, and he has a company called Laser Gadgets, which does exactly what you’d think it does. There are a number of awesome devices on his site, including laser gloves, a pulse laser gun, a flame glove, and many more tools for your spy kit. Many of his mechanism are inspired by movie characters, such as Iron Man, Wolverine, and Spiderman. The disclaimers are also fantastic: “You understand ESD (Electrostatic Discharge) and the precautions necessary to prevent it!” “You will NEVER use this device outside or in front of crowds.” Aw…why ruin all the fun?
