Hey Hey!!

Here's a couple videos showcasing customer submissions to Novalasers.  I made two versions and I can't decide which one I like better, so I thought I'd let you guys decide.  

Version 1 URL:  youtube.com/watch?v=evWt2A5xNKQ

Version 2 URL:  youtube.com/watch?v=DKqtqpLwM_I

(I will send the embed link to a moderator to post into this link.)

Cool....

I give the first one the nod....

Music in the second was a little to bizzare for my tastes..

But that's just be.....an old fuddy duddy. :D

Sharpied matches...lol So far with my limited testing I can light a nonsharpied safety match 20" away from my X105. But white headed matches do need to be sharpied.

I like both the videos, they are great...I can't choose.. :-/

Well i think the 1st is better especially as there is a shot in the 2nd video that might give ppl the wrong idea's about laser safety, its the shot where someone uses a greenie so scare a bird away, it might promote animal cruelty.......

it's pretty mixed on which video you guys like better, so i must as well keep them both on YouTube! ;D

regarding scaring birds, it is a practical use for our lasers that many of our customers do. it's not cruel, but it is a helpful use for bird/pest control.

thanks for your opinions, it's very helpful and appreciated!!

I beg to differ, maybe I am being too hard on this but some of your lasers are high powered and can easily blind a person maybe permanently maybe not but it's the same risk to animals who can not adapt as easily as humans can to loss of sight especially when they have no clue what is happening. I am pretty certain that alot of people on You Tube who do not know the danger's will see this and start doing it to all sorts of animals and then to fellow humans and I fear they will be using them irresponsibly and you will be promoting that.... It only takes one person to make a serious incident to get reported to the police and it then hits the press and there is nothing more likely to stir up emotions than a child being injured or someones faithfull pet.

The video I had posted was a series of customer submissions showing many of the things our customers do with our products, one of which being pest control. Although this topic of discussion was not the intention of my original post I feel I should respond.

Using Lasers in pest control is a humane alternative to other procedures, most severe being the killing of birds. Our instructions do explicitly caution from pointing lasers at animals or other humans, but in the case of keeping birds away from crops, pools, stadiums and other areas, a laser pointer is safe, effective, and humane way to accomplish this task. Have a look at this recent Sports Illustrated Article http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2007/football/nfl/10/01/bengals.pigeons.ap/index.html.

I feel this topic is an important one that I would love to see continued on another post. Do you disagree with this using lasers in pest control? Do you support it? We'd love to know and participate in a discussion.

We've been posting more videos to http://www.youtube.com/novalasers and we will be posting more media here for you guys to see.

We love your comments so keep 'em coming!

Dan :)
