Now, as the book "LASER: Light of a million uses" rightly points out, the uses of a LASER light source are plenty, but what are you buying it for? You might have seen professors dangling a pen during presentations and using it to point at screens. Well, that's the simplest form of a LASER light and it is commonly used as a pointing device at slide shows and presentations.
