12x Blu-ray laser built into a Star Trek (TOS) toy phaser, with sound effects! Answered

I know Kipkay did it first, but this is still awesomely awesomeful :-)  I saw this on MAKE's blog; the original posting is from Jay at Hack'N'Mod.  Using a 12x Blu-ray laser (405nm) running at 465 mW, this has enough power to blind you without eye protection.  It's got a front focus with a properly styled ST:TOS nosecone, and two different selectable sound effects.  Jay's writeup is a complete tutorial for building your own.

It's hard to tell from the video whether it's really that unfocused, or whether the camera saturated. But yeah, it's really amazing!

Yeah that's a good point, it seems that the picture has a smaller point.

...still... it's awesome.
