Hot new flashlight
Subject: General Tech | January 29, 2008 - 09:36 AM | Jeremy Hellstrom
Wicked Lasers (the guys who did the Green and Blu-ray Lasers) have introduced The Torch, a record holding 4100 lumen flashlight that can set things on fire! If you follow the links from Slashdot, you can see the flashlight setting a pile of paper on fire. Sure, the battery will only last for 15 minutes, but that's plenty of time to cook an egg in the dark.
"Engadget is reporting that Wicked Lasers has introduced The Torch. It is the world's brightest and most powerful
flashlight. The Flashlight is capable of melting plastic, lighting paper on fire within seconds, and if you like, fry an
egg or a marshmallow on a stick. At 4100 lumens, The Torch is 100 lumens more powerful than The Polarion Helios, the
former most powerful flashlight, and retails for around $300. The Torch is apparently also undergoing review at the
Guinness Book of World Records."
