Working mini Death Star destroys things quite well, Ep. 228

Culture
Here's what's happening this week on CNET's Crave blog. Star Wars comes out next week, so what better way to get excited for the film than to check out what some Star Wars fans are creating in honor of the film's release, like this. German inventor Patrick Priebe Known for his laser artistry like this working Iron Man laser gauntlets has created a mini working Death Star out of an inflatable ball and 14 adjustable lasers. Priebe posted the video on his YouTube channel Laser-Gadgets this month showing how he built the tiny Death Star. He used an old lamp for the Death Star laser. A giant beach ball to hold the shape of the body which he covered in resin. He then used a laser ray which has four tiny screws for each laser which allowed him to fine tune the focus so that all of the lasers met in the same focus point. Much like the death star from the Star Wars film. [SOUND] Results is a very dangerous laser producing 84 watts of power with the ability to burn through almost any material. Watch the full video embedded in the [UNKNOWN] post. [MUSIC] Kay Jewelers, you know them, every kiss begins with Kay, has created an 18 carat gold bb-8 droid studded with 18 carats of diamonds which will make any princess go gaga for gold. The bb-8 replica stands Four inches tall and weighs 1.5lbs. and contains 860 precious stones. It has been appraised by Glamour magazine to be worth around $135,000. Which is just a tiny drop in the bucket compared to what the Star Wars franchise is about to pull in following the release of the film. [MUSIC] All right guys, that's the show.

[MUSIC] Only you could be so bold. The imperial senate will not sit still for this. When they hear you've attacked- How dare the press not believe me that I went after my mother with a hammer! He said he went went after his mother with a hammer. He wanted to hit her in the head. I don't know what you're talking about. Then I tried to stab a friend of mine, but now it's changed. Whoa, the rebels. My Lord, there are so many uncharted settlements. You don't have to be a total genius to figure this out, even though I am a genius, okay? I'm more militaristic than anybody in this room. Just so you understand, I am really good at war. I love war in a certain way, but only when we win. [MUSIC] [BLANK_AUDIO]
