If I'm correct smaller medical grade units of similar design are used for tattoo removal. I'd bet that model would remove a tattoo pretty quickly....

I can't understand how a laser will remove the rust but not remove any good metal.

I did research it bu didn't find out how it works. My guess is it super heats the surface and vaporizes the contaminated surface. If it does indeed work that way, I would think it could have an effect on the base metal.

My guess is that rust absorbs and clean metal reflects, but that's just a guess.

I would think it could have an effect on the base metal.
It heats only an extremely thin layer (as in a microinch) but gets that layer so hot that it explodes and blows the material off. The amount of heat absorbed by the metal is very small. The same principle is used for laser eye surgery. They use extremely short pulses so that the peak power is high but the average power is not.

Could I do my laundry with it?
What about descaling fish?
Maybe we would no longer need pencil erasers.

Holy Moly! Looks like the 500W version costs +$300K. The one in the video was a 1000W.

Well, if you put all the smoke back in in the right spots it starts working again the trick is in catching all the smoke to put it back :) :)

Ya. Need head to toe covering and special glasses to keep from frying your eyes. Then several hundred hours you need to buy a replacement exciter bulb for a couple grand. No thanks. I will stick to electrolysis. It's about as fast and effortless if you look at just the labor time and not the wait. Much cheaper
