Light As a Weapon, Times Two

Actually, make that times 5000 or so. A while back I wrote an article for the
Martial Arts site
on Light-Based Weapons. The article mostly considered the blinding aspects of high-powered flashlights like the excellent SureFire and its competitors.

Now someone has overclocked a flashlight into a fire-starting ray of destruction:

Extreme Geek: The Fire Starter Flashlight

The inventor cites the amazing Osram Sylvania EVA 64623 HLX Bulb as the core of the solution.

Weird, though, how categorized the Osram product into "Musical Instruments". Maybe if you look too much at the light the pounding in your head from the pain approaches a 4/4 beat.
