Remember when laser pointers first came out and everyone thought they needed one? The tamest middle school science fair presentation was suddenly a light show, and there were always at least one asshole at every movie shining a little red dot onto the leading lady's chest. While we'll admit that they're still not the most necessary piece of technology, they do come in handy if you're making a lot of super profesh presentations, and now Tangram makes a Smart Dot ($80) that turns your iPhone into a laser pointer. In case you were wondering, they still come with the warning to NEVER EVER shine it onto another person, especially not in their eyes... just in case your inner thirteen-year-old wanted to have some fun.
