8W and goggles ?


Argon Ion Laser (8 watts), laser projector and 40 2x2 inch mirrors are used to produce a laser beam alarm. Cris crossing blue/green laser beams reflect and pulse around in the room while the alarm is activated. (Behind the scene, an optical table with accuating mirrors reflect the laser through 50/50 beam splitters and mirrors . The laser light is reflected and directed to the externaly installed mirrors, that direct the final beam destination.)

Yes sir, i'm affraid so.


Another movie:

The Manhattan Project 1986


And here's a plot from macgyver.
Same idea ^^

Manhattan Project. Young genious boy makes a nuke with "hot" fissionable materiel.

He manipulates a laser to cut a small doorway for a remote controlled truck. Descently cool and smartly made movie.

Ditto on Manhattan project.

Aliens had real argon laser .. it's said it was one of the more expensive effects in the movie ..
As I recall it was 'out of budget', but Cameron wanted it so bad he ended up funding it from his own paycheck.

I wonder if X-laser calls CGI lasers illegal if they don't have a CGI variance :D


not just as special effects such as a tunnel light like Outland
I re-watched the bar scene, and those sure look like laser scanners. If they are indeed cone lights I'd like some info or links on how that was done because it looks great.

Didn't Captain Picard (Star Trek) have a little red laser on his
head after assimilation by the Borg?

I think man cut by laser would look more like man cut with cutting torch. Laser cuts by burning. Even if the beam was very thin, there would be TONS of smoke and steam .. and bad smell.

There is a beautiful infrared laser display in ZERO DARK THIRTY during a night vision scene.

Laserglow provided lasers for TRON: Legacy (all the blue line-generators, used in the bar scene and on the balcony at Flynn's home) and Iron Man 2 (seen only briefly when Tony Stark redirects the energy-beam-thing to charge his new arc reactor.)

I have production stills proving this but I'm not allowed to show anyone or Stan Lee will send the Hulk to crush me. That's what it said in the contract.

I was watched the movie final destination and i think they used the real laser in this movie. I can't remember the part in which show but am sure they used laser.
