Are your trainers and execs bored silly with their old-fangled red laser pointers? The newest pointing technology on the market will turn them shades of envy: green laser pointers. And there's more of a difference than just the color. DeHarpporte Trading Company in Eden Prairie, Minn. is selling a hand-held green laser that they claim is 35 times brighter than the average red laser pointer. In the dark, you can see both the green beam and terminating point, whereas only the terminating point of a red laser is visible.

The new toy will cost you $299, two triple-A batteries included, volume discounts available. Contact the company at (800) 840-7829; dharp@net-info.com or visit www.net-info.com/~laser/green.html.
