LaserGadgets is known for building homemade versions of iconic weapons and equipment from comics and movies. He then uploads videos to YouTube, demonstrating how these things actually work in real life, thus blowing the minds of thousands of viewers. His latest creation is his version of Iron Man’s chest piece unibeam. Check it out!
Okay, so it isn’t as explosive as it is in the Avengers and Spider-Man: Homecoming movies, but the fact of the matter is that it WORKS. Patrick Priebe, the mad scientists behind LaserGadgets shows off his laser-powered weapon’s ability to burn through cardboard, wood, metal, and pork. Unreal!
Priebe has built plenty of other impressive pieces as well. His Batman gauntlet is epic, as are his Overwatch tracer pulse gun and original weapons as well. You can even buy some creations on Laser-Gadgets.com. Understandably, the new Iron Man chest piece might not be for sale anytime soon – despite how bad I want one.
My favourite part of Preibe’s website is not a laser rifle, but rather the disclaimer:

In the MCU, Iron Man’s suit is powered by an arc reactor. Tony Stark initially built a miniature version of his father’s invention to keep pieces of shrapnel from making their way into his heart. Once wearing an Iron Man suit, Tony can shoot a beam of energy from his chest piece, as we’ve seen several times in the films.
What do you geeks think of this thing? What should LaserGadgets build next?
