    that demo looked impressive, although i wouldnt want to come into contact with one of those, not sure about radiation but im sure it could do some damage to your skin

    That is down right dangerous. The laser in a dvd burner is way to high power to be used open like that, it only get's its low class (safe to use) when it's enclosed, and the device it's in has saftey interlocks to protect the users from exposure.

    Even reflected light from that would cause near instant perminant eye damage. Remeber it could bounce off a wall out of a window and effect innocent passers by.

    It's cool to light a match but is it worth ending up blind, or worse in court for blinding someone else?
