Just curious, but why are green laser pointers illegal... Is it only green and not other colors?..

Too many idiots were shining them at the cockpit of planes about to land. The red ones are legal because they are strong enough, I guess the other colours would be illegal too.

I mean because they aren't strong enough, I cant edit that post for some reason.

You can get the thing in blue so it's perfectly legal in Australia.  Any laser product producing an output of OVER 1000mW (1watt) of output is illegal in the US. In Australia it's 500mW or more(to the public w/o proper permits and protective eyewear), and since lasers that powerful are usually green or blue (and lawmakers aren't laser experts); so they decided to outlaw all green lasers, which is funny because you can get 1watt lasers with red beams and you can get green lasers with a 5mW output, making the standing law pretty pointless.

These look great, it would be nice if I had enough money to splash out on a couple of these. For all of those waiting for the real thing your going to have a long wait, anything more powerful than this would not be available to buy, but when the technology becomes so cheap/common that the everyday man could put one together themselves then we could all have our own secret lightsabers.

I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other. I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to show me where the hell Helen of Annoy has been for the past couple of months.
