    Am I going to go blind?

    150mw, non direct hit .. you should be fine. If you have after images longer then few minutes, visit doctor to be sure.

    Laser Show Display Device - What mw is this?

    Basically 9 of 10 times it's easier to just buy these lasers in portable form and don't dismantle perfectly working laser show.

    Re: Drone Attack Laser Oh, backscatter X-rays .. I think my country customs office bought like 3. Then they found out that they can't use them, cause it's not allowed to irradiate people without their consent.

    Eye damage by laser pointer.

    I have dark shadow on left eye, on lower left side of the usual vision cone. I started noticing it around the time I was playing with my 1W blues. I had my eyes checked and shows up my retina is perfectly fine. It seems to be some defect in the lens itself. The doctor said he could spot...

    Trench periscope & Geiger counter

    Yeah, $50 is good price. And while my CDV700 could actually be useful, it's too big, clunky and beautiful to be really taken outside. Also historic. Based on serial number I estimate it to 1962. It's prized piece of my collection :D Btw. don't leave batteries inside when it's in the shelf. Also...

    Trench periscope & Geiger counter

    Well sadly this is 'high dose' meter. It only detects gamma, and only high intensities. It's for surveys of the hotspots right after nuclear attacks. It's all but useless for finding common radioactive stuff. I have CDV 777 .. which looks ALMOST exactly the same .. but has stand alone probe, and...

    Lasers in the sky!?! (google earth sky).

    Those streak looks like satellites. They can tumble, which explains the regular changes in intensity. Those two lines of different color could actually be ISS with resupply module closing in. It looks just like this. ISS itself is kinda redish due the it's solar panels. Add the usual crazy...

    Laser pointer as alternative volleyball net outside

    Visible beam is never safe. Simple as that. Optical fibre could look just as cool though.

    Yeah, true .. but then .. black is color too, right ? Soo .. :beer:
