$600 for a laser pointer because it's blue?

No thanks, we'll just use a wooden stick

Vavolo

Being of a blatantly superficial nature, we're fond of gadgets that come in a variety of colors . Even laser pointers, as we noted with a recent one in green .

But there is a limit to our chromatic fetish, especially where our wallet is concerned--even if it does involve a blue laser. China's Vavolo says its "PowerMaster 5mw Blue Beam Laser Pointer" is much brighter than green counterparts with the same power output.

That's great, but wait till you see the price: $600. (And that's discounted from the original $800.) For that kind of money, red looks just fine.
