Popping 100 balloons with a laser



 Here is a world record submission video of 100 balloons falling like dominoes in a single file line. If confirmed, this will have been the most balloons in a single file line consecutively popped from end on with a single fixed visible laser beam to date.

Using a 750mW - 1000mW (1W) Spyder III Krypton Laser the record for single file balloon popping was set: 100 six inch (15.2 cm) balloons!

This video has been submitted to the Guinness Book of World Records for officiation. The balloons are held in place by being weighted down with specially modified cups filled with water. This prevents balloons that are popping from knocking other balloons out of position.

The focusing lens used is from a soldering kit's "helping hands" alligator clips holder.
