Where there’s a will, there’s a way, and while I’m not 100% sure what inspired Rog8811 to cram a Blu-ray laser diode into a Zippo housing, the results are well worth the effort that went into this mod. He’s provided a pretty detailed step-by-step explanation of how the whole thing was put together on his site, but I’ll warn you, it’s definitely not for the faint of heart. I threw in the towel before I even got below-the-fold. But if you manage to pull it off you’ll have a laser-powered Zippo that can not only light a cigar in just a few seconds, but is also capable of providing severe retinal damage if you don’t wear safety glasses whenever you use it. Awesome!
