Mentioning laser pens will most likely conjure feelings of sheer joy coupled with guilt and regret. The humble laser pen which was once at the top of the boy’s toy box has now receded in popularity after claims of blindness and antisocial behaviour. But one company wants to reignite our childlike fascination with them.

The light-based design agency Haberdashery are asking for a sizable amount of money to take their totally beautiful laser splicer to the next level. Laserpod has been around for a decade, but Haberdashery say they want to beef up it’s specs for a more intense display. More laser fragments, a more powerful laser, a stepper motor for precise angling and the ability to remove refraction to produce a single beam.

Haberdashery’s custom crystal causes the laser to be split multiple times to create a light display that looks almost living. Incorporating different materials adds even more variation. The laser seems to work well shone through cloudy liquids like milk for example. And since the laser is safe for eyes mothers can be assured that their children and pets won’t be horribly blinded.

Head over to Kickstarter to get it funded.
