Is this a world record?
A geek is going for a Guinness World Record for popping the most balloons using a laser. The record-setting attempt uses 100 balloons held down by modified water glasses to keep the balloons for moving around as they pop. The laser used is a Wicked Lasers Spyder III Krypton in 750mW to 1000mW strength.
The beam is fired through a magnifying lens and pops all the balloons within a couple minutes. It's impressive how quickly the lasers able to pop the balloons. Check out the video below to see for yourself.
