This weapon is your life.

I'm just now getting around to posting this entry, showing an attraction that has garnered attention on several Web sites I've seen. One person posted it on my Facebook wall after I'd already seen it on the New York Daily News.

It's a high-powered laser that can burn flesh. Also, its makers — who are either living in some sort of isolated cave and had no idea that they were replicating a pop-culture icon or Star Wars fans with a sense of humor — gave it a very familiar appearance.

Check out the lightsaber ... er, laser pointer here.

Compare it with a few real lightsaber props.
