    It will be so awesome when they start outfitting the animals at seaworld with lasers so that it can be a Star Bucks / Seaworld. Those lazy dolphins free ride is over, time for a some lazer barista training!

    From what I can make of the video, the NO: YAG Laser is 2,5 kW And the HeNe is 3mW…
