Working Laser Cannon Arm From ‘Metroid’ #WearableWednesday

This super detailed functional arm cannon was shared by Hyper_Ion on Instructables. The demo shows the laser blasting Metroids disguised as black balloons so be careful with this project!

There aren’t many video game characters quite as awesome as Samus. Universe saving bounty hunter with one of the coolest weapons in all of sciFi. When I saw Instructables was hosting a Video Game based competition, I immediately knew it was her weapon I wanted to make a reality.

And this is the result! This laser cannon is powerful enough to easily destroy a balloon instantly, ignite flammable materials on contact, and even cut through thin plastic! Not to mention it is easily visible in air. It even has light and sound effects!

Enjoy!

****Warning. This is not a toy. Lasers should always be treated with the utmost respect. The laser core was deigned to be used in small laser cutters. Always wear adequate eye protection, and never point it at or near a living thing.It will cause serious burns on contact. Use common sense.****
