The Making of the Wicked Lasers Blu-ray Laser
 
 

In case you did not believe the story that the Blu-ray Laser we reported about 10 days ago, here are photos of how Wicked Lasers is building one.

Wicked Lasers took the sparse blue laser diodes used in Blu-ray Disc drives and made a cool limited edition Laser gadget out of it called Sonar. If you wanto own one it costs you $1,999.99.

The target="_blank">photos show Wicked Lasers lead laser engineer, Dr. John Garner Ph. D. and his assistant.

The steps to create a Blu-ray pointer from a Blu- ray disc player are:
1 - The player covering is removed and the Blu-ray diode is extracted carefully from the drive.

2- The company has developed a PCB board to pair with the Blu-ray diode and optics are added to focus the laser beam.

3 - After testing the power output, the laser module (Diode + PCB + lenses + brass housing) is inserted into another brass casing for heat dissipation and to fit the casing.

4 - A single Cr-123A Lithium Ion battery is used to power the unit. The blu-ray laser dot has purple color and registers to have power of 23mW.

See the photos of the Blu-ray laser making of in our photo gallery.
More details about the Wicked Lasers Sonar can be found on their site.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
