Drake Anthony, aka the D-I-Y Laser Guy, has been tearing apart and building lasers since he was 12 years old. He has also been posting videos demonstrating these homemade lasers on his popular Styropyro YouTube channel.

On Sunday, Anthony uploaded a new video showing off the power of a 40 watt "laser shotgun" he built at home. Something he said he was even afraid to build but did because he could and it wasn't illegal.

He mounted an apparatus that includes eight 5W laser beams (totaling to 40W) in a parallel fashion behind a magnifying glass.

In the short video, Anthony demonstrates the power of his new creation on a series of balloons, some black powder, a piece of wood and more, easily igniting a host of items -- typically in less than a second.
