You can clean things with Lasers, and watching it be done is mesmerizing.

  • The P-Laser QF-1000 is a 1,000 watt laser cleaning gun
  • It’s used to remove rust, paint, mold, and other contaminates from surfaces
  • The layer of rust absorbs the laser energy while the metal surface reflects most of the energy
  • The laser is short pulsed meaning the beam is comparable to small bullets of light
  • When the light bullet hits the surface, the metal stays cool while the rust heats up
  • The rust heats so quickly that it’s forced away from the metal and evaporates
  • When recorded, laser gun cleaning creates a very satisfying video


“BIONs” – short for Believe It or Not – is the word we use at Ripley’s to refer to anything that is unbelievable and worthy to become part of Ripley’s lore and collection.
