Default small, safe, close range options

Hello learned gentlemen,

I come in search of wisdom, advice, and maybe some leads to hardware. I'm building a very simple, fixed focus camera that presents some challenges. The lens to subject distance is very small, so depth of field is very shallow, even when using a small aperture. As there is no focus mechanism, and focus is fixed at a set distance, I want to use two converging beams as a focus indicator. There was something similar called the Focuspot:

The Kalart Focuspot

But the Focuspot worked with the rangefinder to converge the beams at different focus distances. My camera will have the beams fixed at the single focus distance, so a much simpler mechanism. I'm sure precision light beam technology has made some advances since the Focuspot's day. My camera is a portrait camera, so I need a safe beam. The focus distance will be in the 3'-4' range, so I don't need much power, but small, crisp dots would make focus more accurate, and it should be bright enough to see clearly on a sunny day.

Suggestions?

Thanks in advance,

Jay
