Nerdiest fuckin' thread in The Armory.
But still, given that cell phones were supposedly invented because of the Star Trek "communicator", I'm surprised nobody's managed to invent phasers yet, especially ones with a "stun" setting for police, to replace Tasers.
Well dude if you want a phaser just grab a Taser from the 70s.
You Star Trek nerds are wwwwaaaaaaaayyyy behind the curve here. People have been using these toys in combination with "blue ray" blue/violet lasers to make actual cutting/burning lasers for some time. Get with the times, suckas!

Just google/Youtube your search and you'll find detailed plans/movies on how to assemble these. They'll usually burn paper, ignite matches/fuel sources with little or no waiting time.
Here's a step-by-step video:

Did you see the scene in Bloodsport where the Hong Kong cops get tased?
