Agreed, having worked with a lab that certifies products sold in the US (21 cfr) and internationally (60825-1 and -2), lasers have gotten more powerful and compact than most folks realize. Class 4 lasers are easily integrated into the handheld green pointers that most of us have seen. What isnt realized is that the 150mw pointers that will blind you like a thief in the night. I have posted blue 445nm and green 532nm lasers to youtube that I have made burning through objects in close proximity, remember these are handheld pointers. Its all about your collimation, and focus on the desired target. These things are dangerous, and used by kids in third world countries for fun. Oh, btw green lasers emit 3 distinct wavelengths, 808 (almost invisible, therby bypassing your blink aversion), 1064nm (same deal), and 532nm which happens to be the peak wavelength for the cones in your eyeball which appears very intense.
