Tthe laser bong, a piece of stoner technology so advanced that it will probably take NASA scientists decades before they’re able to replicate it. Reports Vice’s Motherboard.


They go on to say

Developed by the company Silicon Cali, the laser bong uses a two-watt, 445 nanometer laser to light a bong bowl. This is about 400 times more powerful than the average laser pointer, which has an output of about five milliwatts. Silicon Cali even sells special glasses that are meant to protect your eyes while looking directly at the laser when you take a hit.

“The laser is not that dangerous, it’s not going to cut your finger off or anything crazy like that,” Justin Zelaya, the founder of Silicon Cali, told me in an email. “It may sting a little bit if you get your hand in the way but kind of like a magnifying glass.”

Zelaya told me that he worked with five other people to produce the bong and that their backgrounds range from “Bitcoin core developer to a mad scientist, like myself.”

Zelaya said the bong is controlled by small computer so that the bong’s bowl can be spun while you’re lighting it. The glass, which is custom blown in California, is lined with color-changing LEDs. The entire thing is controlled by a phone app.

Each laser bong is being sold for $2,400—which as far as I can see is worth every damn penny. These laser bongs are a limited edition product, however. According to Silicon Cali’s website, only 45 of the devices will be sold.
