When is a light too bright?

Some things exist in the world that are obviously going to be used for malicious purposes. Take for instance, the 15,000 Lumen LED Light Cannon. This is a self-contained light source that can blind you, with the literal flick of a button.

You could try and call this a flashlight, but for anything that houses 32-36 lithium batteries is going to mean a little bit more than just illuminating underneath your car to find your keys. This can’t even be used as a motion sensor light at night for deterring burglars as it would blind the neighbors when they’re out for an evening stroll. It even has a fan because of how hot the LEDs get. There are three power settings, with the highest being the 15,000 Lumens. This cannon has been named the XM18, and costs an appropriate $2,500. These things are made to order, so if you decide to get one, just keep in mind that your evil genius plan will need to wait for a bit until it arrives.

  • The product is cool but the pitch is terrible. The guy at the booth never does state what the product is and doesn't seem very knowledgeable about the specs. He uses the word "um" about 20 times as he struggles to describe the basic features in his monotone voice. Guy number two seems to be prompting him to hit the highlights and he should have been the one demonstrating the light. I'm still left wondering if it is water resistant. Maybe they can actually conduct some tests to find out?

  • The prefect test is for those hippies down at the Occupy Movement camps!
