Below is a video of a working hand-held phaser a la Star Trek. Watch carefully, then decide if it's a fake or a true, working model.
According to Laser Point Forums, it's not only REAL, it's a DIY. Anybody up for giving it a try? If you build one, post your snapshots or a videos here. We'd love to see someone prove (or disprove) this wacky video!
What do you think?
