Video: i.Saw USB-powered chainsaw (mm-hmm)

Behold the world’s first USB-powered chainsaw. Available now for pre-order from, the i.Saw is the size of a standard computer keyboard and features “zero startup time” while “Patent-pending technology allows for an unparalleled distribution of power.”

The above video shows the chainsaw in action, although you may notice that all of the actual cutting is handled by a quick closeup of chainsaw teeth. Fake? Probably. If it’s not fake, though, it’s a brilliant feat of engineering.

Most signs — no way to actually lay money down for a pre-order, overambitious use of jargon, shady promo video — point to fake, unfortunately. Our resident handyman, Matt Burns, will be disappointed. via OhGizmo!
