Meet Drake Anthony, The Genius Behind The Homemade Laser Shotgun

Jul 13, 2015 By Hannah Austin
Drake Anthony has been hard at work in his garage. By combining knowledge from his triple majors of math, chemistry and physics at Southern Illinois University, the 22-year-old has built something that looks like it belongs in a sci-fi movie or comic book – but this is the real deal.

Anthony, otherwise known as “styropyro,” has been experimenting with lasers and pyrotechnics for the last ten years. He first achieved YouTube fame in 2013, when his video of a homemade light saber received over 3 million views. Since that time, Anthony has perfected his technique, and built something that he’s “almost afraid to use.” After seeing his genius in action, it’s not hard to see why.
