NES Zapper shoots real fire-causing laser

Don’t be fooled by the plastic orange styling, this is a real, dangerous laser gun – that you can make

Finally one of the first guns we ever handled – the NES Zapper – has become a real duck hunting laser canon.

Alright you’ll probably just set ducks on fire rather than end them like in the original Duck Hunt game. But this 2W laser has been made a reality by North Street Labs. They crammed in a 445nm diode, batteries, a heat sink, and even a safety on this laser blaster. And the best part is you can even build it yourself following this handy guide. Next time someone needs a cigarette lit make sure you’ve got this in your holster for some serious party points.
