    Here's a slick off topic tech video to entertain you guys with today. A crafty YouTube VLOG called laser-gadgets.com put together a video of his James Bond style creation. He calls it the LaserWatch and that's exactly what it is. It's a digital watch with a 1,500 milli-watt laser attached to it!

    He proceeds to use the LaserWatch to light matches, pop balloons and burn through CD cases in a brilliant display. Some of the video is a bit dry as he shows off the various parts of his concoction, but the laser burning parts are enjoyable.

    It just goes to show what a bit of ingenuity, time and money can do!

    Pretty sure that thing needs safety.

    Not sure I'd want it on my wrist in its current homemade state.

    Hasn't burned his wrist yet. That's good.
