But will it cut through a TL13 vac suit?

That video is intense. I wonder what the scarring looks like.

I posted this with a worse headline! Good job subby.

Delicious!

That's really cool. And the video is not that bad - no worse than cleaning a chicken.

When do I get my lightsaber?

No kidding, that was some nice yellow fat that came out of that incision. Put that between two slices of white bread, lettuce, tomato, and a dab of mayo, and you have some mighty fine eatin'.

I was thinking deep fried (or blackened, yum!) with some honey mustard to dip it in and a side of seasoned baby potatos and a fresh garden salad.

DNWTFV, but if it's anything like Han Solo slicing open the Tauntaun, then I'll pass.

That's actually a good comparison.

Pretty much identical, except less fur.

That is pretty kickass.

Great for surgery and it looks like it could carve a roast turkey perfectly.
I wonder how it cuts bread though.
Not quite certain just what havoc the children of the "Precious Snowflake Era" would do to the family pets or siblings if such a "clean nearly bloodless cut" tool were in their deviant hands under the control of their ego-blinded warped brains. I figure short-lived versions of "CatDog" would start turning up in the dumpsters of America the day this thing hit the shelves as a general-purpose home meat cutting tool. I also figure bratty preteen girls playing "doctor" with this thing and unleashing a generation of weinerless / castrated boys.

// Also wondering if veins and arteries reopen after being instant-cold-cauterized.
/// Also seeing the remnants of the "Cold Heat" soldering iron in that technology.

Oh, yeah, forgot all about New You. I went for the Traveller reference.

I got mod-slapped for posting that very pic a long time ago

Are you serious? I've posted that before. WTF was the big deal I wonder.

I was okay with the seared flesh opening up, but had to close window when I saw the yellow blobs of fat pushing out of the incision.

Erp. Urk. Done.

Eh, that video wasn't too bad. Of course, I've seen an orthopedic surgeon hammer a nail all the way down someone's femur. With a perfectly normal hammer.

So, we're basically about one step away from inventing power swords.

Yup. :D

One piece of advice: if that promotional video bothered you, DO NOT EVER watch a woman give birth.

/still prefer MRI/CT, where all reslicing is reversible
//Cyril M Kornbluth (new window) is marginally impressed
