Heat Him UP "Green Hornet" Laser Ring. Faster Than He Can Blink
A standard laser pointer is limited to be under 5 milliwatts (mW) of light power. The damage threshold for the human eye is about 1 mW. So, since 5 > 1, a laser pointer can damage your vision. The reason laser pointers are not generally more powerful than 5 mW is because above 5 mW, the damage will occur faster than you can blink. So if you ever come across a laser pointer with more than 5 mW you could cause damage.
If you were to take a laser for aCD/DVD/BluRay player the laser is more than 5 mW and can do the damage faster than you can blink.

The Inspiration- This project builds on the
IronWoman Project which uses a cool lighting solution to ward off a group of attackers.
The Technology- The goal of Heat Him Up is to aid in fending off a single attacker. Green lasers have been reported being very disorienting because a green laser can effect eyes, and can cause people to stumble and fall.
A green laser’s light concentrated into a narrow beam if aimed at a person’s eye from close up, most or all of the light goes through the pupil. The already-concentrated light is further focused by the lens onto a sharp (“diffraction-limited”) dot on the retina.
Hooligans have used green lasers from ground locations to impact airplane pilots in flight.
The power density from a 1 milliwatt laser, focused to a point, is brighter than the equivalent area of the sun’s surface.
The Trigger-The ring would be triggered by the heart rate increase of the wearer.
The Manufacturing- The rings could be built, sold by womwn in a
"Piecework Network" and distributed by women through NGO's using the supply chain network of multinational companies will to support women.
Explain your idea in one sentence.
In the moment protection for a woman or girl under attack triggered by increase in heart rate
What is the need you are trying to solve?
Avoiding and Reacting to Danger in the Moment
Who will benefit from this idea and how would you monitor its success?
This would be a good solution for women in urban and other secluded locations that might be unsafe.
Who would be best equipped to implement this idea in the real world? You? Your organisation? Another organisation or entity?
I think the item could be designed in 3D and placed on Thingiverse for anyone to print.
The laser elements could be a part of a "Piecework Network" and distributed by NGO's using the supply chain network of multinational companies that do business in these regions.
Where should this idea be implemented?
Anyplace women and girls are in danger of attack.
How might you prototype this idea and test some of the assumptions behind it?
Create and print a 3D model of the ring , and use laser pointer components as prototype elements for the laser.
