Can You Pop a Car Tire With a Burning Laser? Dropping a Real Diamond In Molten 4 months ago   05:25

The Action Lab
In this video I see if a laser is a good tool to pop a car tire. First I try it with the tire spinning, then I try it with the laser held in one spot to see if we can actually pop a tire with a laser!

Damn... I thought this could handy for douchebag parking. Just nip the valve stem off, lol.

Should have done it directly top down, and not on a finstack-like part of the side wall.
Still would probably not have popped (excluding smoke blocking the beam), but it would have left a more noticeable mark.

No

what about using laser for starting camp and wood stove fires? would the battery last long enough for such a thing? would it take way too long to get fire going? Would it reduce/remove kindling needs?

if you own a drone and put it to a test, will the lazer drop the drone?

First off, no tire is *ever* going to "pop" like a balloon from a small puncture, they're specifically designed to prevent that. Your attempt at burning through failed because you were using an unfocused beam. Even though the spot diameter was small enough to generate enough heat to make smoke, it was still WAY too large to burn any holes. Try placing a long focal length lens in the beam and focus it down to a much smaller spot size. You'll get CLOUDS of smoke and it shouldn't take too long to perforate the sidewall.


HOWEVER, I *strongly* suggest that you invest in and use protective eyewear that is appropriate for the power level and wavelength of the laser you are using. Any handheld laser device with a power output greater than 50mW is easily one of the most eye hazardous things that you can get your hands on.

Placing one's hand in the path of a 1000mW+ laser beam while wearing a shiny, _reflective_ ring and NO safety eyewear? *_Pure genius..._*

what about a 40watt CO2 laser mounted in a cop car

Burn the trike tire.

You also got to remember what tires are made for. Driving on asphalt or concrete at high speeds constantly? Of course they're going to be incredibly durable. If they weren't, they'd break a lot more often.

idiot..

You're lucky the tyre didn't pop. You know the rims can shatter and it would be like a grenade going off in your garage.

Use a magnifying glass

It's amazing that so many people here can't even spell "tire" correctly! For the love of god it's TIRE not tyre!!
nejinaji
I'll never talk shit about movie lasers again
TiagoTiago
Isn't that laser powerful enough to require eye-protection for anyone in the same room?
darron ranson
Try shining laser in vacum chamber and try to shoot a video with different camera

Your Laser is inefficient!
It's Lase4rpoint is too linear

Dropping a Real Diamond In Molten Can You Pop a Car Tire With a Burning Laser? 4 months ago   04:25

In this video I drop a real diamond in molten lava to see if it will burn or survive. We know that real diamonds can burn under the right conditions. But what about in a furnace of molten hot lava? Watch and find out! Thanks to https://pureatbirth.com/ for donating the diamond!
