We’ve teamed up with Wicked Lasers to bring you this Laser Contest! Show off your skills with a laser to win a seriously powerful laser. Grand prize is the ridiculously bright 1W S3 Spyder III Arctic, the World's Most Powerful Laser.

So how to win it? Submit a new Instructable that involves a laser from Mar. 9 to Apr. 17. Yes, it must involve a laser.

Lasers are very powerful devices that are great fun when used correctly. Be sure to demonstrate that you know how to safely work with lasers in your Instructable. That means using laser safety goggles for a Class 3R laser or higher. Eyes are wonderful things.

So go ahead and make a new Instructable involving a laser. Document your project with lots of great photos and provide clear instructions so that others can learn from your work. We can’t wait to see what it is!
