Griffin crams laser pointer and pen into a stylus

The crazy kids over at Griffin Technology have figured out how to mash together a pen, stylus, and laser pointer in one device. It's like a Transformers action figure for grown-ups with jobs.

Most modern business warriors don't need actual Swiss Army knives in the course of a typical work day. But they do love gadgets with Swiss Army-style features.

The Griffin Stylus + Pen + Laser Pointer not only sports a very long and specific name, it also delivers exactly what it promises. It's a stylus with a built-in pen and laser pointer.

This device is designed to withstand the rigors of the conference room battleground, survive the brutal world of tablet input, write grand poetry on actual paper, and amuse bored cats.

The pen part of the Stylus + Pen + Laser Pointer is refillable. The stylus has a rubber tip that is supposed to mimic the press of a finger. Chances are, your iPad or Android tablet won't know the difference between your loving human touch and the caress of the stylus.

The integrated clip will hold it firmly in the embrace of your pocket protector. Bottom line: it's less nerdy than carrying three separate devices. The Griffin Stylus + Pen + Laser Pointer comes in at a price tag of $49.99.
