Here's the thing about those pen lasers you can buy from the store: they're a big disappointment. Well, except to cats, who seem to love them. However, given all the promises that cartoons, tv and movies have made regarding the power of lasers, the reality is, my pen laser's greatest destructive feat is that it might possibly hurt just a little if I were to drop it on my toe (but even then probably not.)

BUT, that's until this little fellow showed up on the scene. It can ignite a match and cut through black electrical tape. Sure, maybe not the kind of thing we'll be strapping to the front of out spaceships just yet, but after watching the video's of these things in action, who here wouldn't wonder what it would be like to use one of these super-lasers to play target practice with a few house flies?
