How Did It Take So Long To Make A Star Trek Phaser Laser Pointer?

Combining a simple red laser pointer with a Star Trek phaser toy seems so incredibly obvious, but it's apparently taken this long for a clever entrepreneur to put those pieces together and come up with this adorable keychain that actually fires a glowing blast. That or it's taken years to negotiate the Star Trek licensing rights.

But, either way, it's here now and ready to highlight important points in a PowerPoint presentation, annoy fellow movie going patrons at the next Trek film, or just fulfil all of your Captain Kirk roleplay fantasies.

With a $35 price tag it's of course not powerful enough to do any real damage — not like the many DIY versions you'll find online — and you'll have to provide your own sound effects. But that just makes it extra fun, right? PEW PEW PEW.
