I bought a GeoChron Blue GPS logger. Product page is here

SparkFun Electronics - GeoChron Blue - Field-hardened GPS Logger with Bluetooth®

It has nothing to do with lasers I'm afraid. I'm planning on launching a weather balloon experiment in a couple months and knowing the exact path of the thing would be great information to be had. Plus, having one makes me feel like a secret agent!
The GPS logger looks nice. Going to add a bluetooth to WiFi repeater? It may come in handy if it gets away... :whistle:

Good thing, I didn't waste any time on this deal...only thing I was thinking of was the pocket o-scope, but after reading it's specs I found it to be useless for my needs, so I just didn't bother and am sticking to the 20+ pound box on my desk. :D

To me the deal was like free electronics samples, if I don't need it, I don't request it.

I knew this deal was too good to be true. In the end like 95% of the people who tried just ended up wasting a ton of their time and getting nothing. I wasted like an hour of my time then gave up :(
