Military Laser Pointer Blinds People From 2.5 Miles Away
The GLARE LA-9/P isn't your ordinary laser pointer.
Coined by the Marines as an "ocular interruption device", this laser pointer fires a 250-milliwatt beam (approximately 1/4,000 the strength of the smallest anti-aircraft lasers). The weapon is non-lethal, and apparently does not cause long-term effects. Still, I wouldn't want it pointed anywhere near me.
