Transform a Handheld Flashlight into a Working Laser

How cool would it be to start the bonfire at your next camping outing using a handheld flashlight? -one that may be used to light matches and even strong enough to pop balloons.

This Do It Yourself project is extremely clever; tt consists of taking the laser eye from a DVD burner and combining it with a small usable flashlight.

The Kipkay video below takes you step by step through the entire process, which is not a simple DIY project. It does involve soldering, wiring, and intricate work, but the final product is unbelievable.

By the way, since the laser is powerful enough to light a match, we do recommend being careful making this project and keeping it our of the reach of children.
