Using the nom du video DIY Laser Guy, Drake Anthony offers straightforward smoke-filled tutorials for creating your very own Skywalker-worthy sabers. Anthony got his hands on a green laser at age 12, and he’s been ripping apart household electronics ever since. “It was trial and error,” he says. “I learned a lot about it on the Internet.” Now he’s giving back. Anthony’s videos have been viewed about 40 million times. Most of his work is recycling—he extracts diodes from DVD burners and digital projectors, pulls heat sinks from dead computers, fits them into modules, hooks up batteries, and melts electronics with built-from-scratch radiation.
