    Default UK MEET - World Record Attempt

    Call me crazy Horse ! Just had a mad idea inspired by image of Rob ( stanwax ) picture of him in 1978 - as shown in another thread .
    In the background was BALLOONS .

    WORLD RECORD ATTEMPT
    Maximum number of balloons popped in ONE minute by LASER.

    There is of course no such world record but that doesnt stop us tying to Invent one and offering it to the guinness book of records ( courtesy of oor andys video skills LOL ) , if nothing else it will make a good you Tube video methinks ! and also GBR has a video section. It takes months and months to get anything approved by GBR but never know one day we might actually get a certificate !

    Proposal
    Stage full of Balloons ( precounted) , expectation "Hundreds of balloons" ---- note please that was stage full of balloons not baffoons !
    Someone doing a countdown clock by laser projected behind stage - someone doing UKLEM Text on wall behind stage
    20 + other laser systems BLASTING balloons to bits for the amusement of You Tube fanatics ( errr and US ) and with the faint hope you might one day receive a photocopy of a certificate stating that one when it comes to balloon popping we are the Dogs B*****Ks


    How many of you are up for it then

    Paul,

    You seem to be condoning the irresponsible use of high power lasers for the juvenile kicks of popping a few balloons.

    The un-deflected beams will present a considerable eye hazard and would cause the HSE to throw a complete wobbly fit.

    Hell, who am I kidding, count me in ;-)
    Lasers and beer don't mix. After 2 beers I lose coherence.

    I haven't tried popping a balloon yet, but if mine is capable, count me in!

    ...and if when we've done that; laser clay pigeon shooting! - Helium balloons and use your favorite laser software to aim and fire. Sort of like a live asteroids game! tehe

    this sound fun but baloons are quite shiney and a speculkar refection is possible may i suggest sticking to one frequency ( eg all green or red) and making sure all have goggles
