    This..is..not..good.

    I can 'see' it now..a bunch of hairless, blind cats. Kids who think they can use a 1W laser to play with their cat...UGGH.

    Not to mention blinded drivers and pilots.

    These should be treated the same as guns. Legally as well as handling. There's another video of one cutting through a CD case.

    In the Uk last year there were nearly 1000 "attacks" on airliners, police helicopters and air ambulance helicopters :eek:

    1 idiot even took on an AH64 Apache - shame it wasn't armed :)

    Several people are now behind bars for such attacks - I don't know about elsewhere but in the UK it is a criminal offence.

    It is also illegal to shine lasers into the clear sky in Texas. I suspect aiming this at someone could be construed as assault with a deadly weapon. I think the green lasers shined at airline pilots fall under that category, and they were relatively weak. Thing is folks, prices drop. $200 today, $100 next year, $50 year after that.

    Well, one piece of good news, just read BMorses link, the price jumps up to $299 after midnight PST today.

    Reason I think this is good news is there are an awful lot of idiots out there.
