In for one. About $5 cheaper after shipping than others I can find. Now I'll have one of each color.

Unbeatable price?

Free shipping. Comes out to cheaper. Sorry, skoofy. Seems like there's a bunch of laser sellers in Morton Grove, IL. You should hit up your neighbor and tell him to stop selling his lasers for cheaper.

I bought one before, it broke. I'm buying one again cause I believe in the power of God.

Fun thing with the blue-violet laser pointers: They edge into the UV spectrum. Hit anything florescent or Glow-in-the-Dark, and it'll light up like a supernova.

ALso, because of this, the dot produced will appear to diffuse over distance. In reality, it's your eye not being able to focus properly - the dot is still the same size at the target.

Fun stuff. Most cats won't chase the dot, though. Don't think they can see it properly.

i like this purple color laser.

Got one myself a while ago, and have another interesting thing to mention: if the rays are bounced off certain textures of materials (like textured white plastic) the light given off by it can be used to see bodily residue after it's been cleaned up. But it won't work with the light given off directly by it.

@robinbobcat: Thanks for the cat comment... I am looking for a new cat toy laser pointer. Anyone know if they chase green?

@ruf1o: They do indeed. My problem is that the green laser I have is bright enough to be painful to look at, and I /can't/ let them play with it for fear of blinding a kitty.

@smitelight: Also a concern of mine. As much as my cat pisses me off sometimes, I just can't bring myself to make him blind for the rest of his felife...

@ruf1o: Yes! Like Crazy!!!! I made a cat so dizzy it fell down. :)

@dahuber: lol I can relate. My cat used to follow it so fastidiously in a circle that he would eventually stop and his head would spin like a human's head does when they're dizzy. too funny. kinda mean, but funny

<5mW (IIIa or lower) is considered safe for human aversion response, which means you won't blind a human with it on accident. To my knowledge, there haven't been similar studies done for animals for ANY type of laser. Your eye response peaks at green, meaning that you can "see" green easier than red or blue. So the green laser pointer looks really bright. For an eye of a different species that peaks in red, a red laser pointer would look very bright.

They are cheaper on ebay from US power sellers. This is not a good deal.

I could swear that they stole the description from an earlier woot...
