Just finished building my 40W(!!!) laser shotgun!!! The output of this laser is complete insanity, and is made up of 8 parallel 5W laser beams totaling to 40W. The parallel beams are manipulated with lenses, sort of like how a choke modifies the spread of a shotgun blast.
Follow me on Instagram to see some crazy stuff!! :D https://www.instagram.com/styro.drake/
The massive diode array is powered by a huge lithium polymer battery pack (capable up dumping 250A) and the laser array is regulated by a whopping 24 LM317 drivers.

This is definitely the craziest thing I have ever built, but I hope to beat this invention with something even crazier before too long. :D
