Hello. This is the final concept for the steampunk laser, although it reminds me of the Hugo Gernsback, Art Deco look. It will have a 7 watt blue laser, and a 1 watt green laser for targeting. It also has a HV. "Lightning in a bottle" plasma tube, and a custom laser sound effect from "Gold Finger" I will be posting pictures of the electronics, and parts I have so far as soon as I can hunt down my photographer.... Ed.

Wow, this definitely should have got some comments by now. I think it's a really cool-looking piece of gear, although I'm slightly confused as to how the user would grip it!

Yeah,oh well. And, you're not the only one. Although it wasn't meant for human hands.

That was my first thought, too.

Are you going to build such a thing for real?? In that case I'd kill for (not really) knowing where you got the lasers from, I had use for a 1 Watt laser. If not, I'd suggest a change of specs: Exchange the 7W blue laser for a 70W infrared (or dark red if you really really need the beam to be visible) laser, that's still not a lot of damage but at least 9 times more and the beam generator is only 9 times bigger in volume and weight, shouldn't be a problem, and exchange the 1W green one with tunable 0,4W color changing laser, this one just needs to be visible under all circumstances and 0.4W o any primary color you like should be better.

Oh gosh, I just looked up some lasers, industrial cutting lasers start at 250W and go up to several 1000W, show lasers (visible beams) go up to 400W continuous, non-pulsed beam. Light power output, mind you. Even the show lasers are nowhere near laser pointers or CD burner lasers in wattage. So for a beam weapon that should do physical damage in some distance, just forget it. If you want them to blind enemies or for signallinf & communication, that's something different, depending on the distance, you can get away with low wattages like your original design has.

Tl;dr: Don't mind me, I'm just gibberin incoherently.
