A comprehensive resource for safe and responsible laser use
US: "SkyTag Green Laser Aircraft Tracker" gag product
According to ThinkGeek, SkyTag comes with software that finds aircraft through online tracking websites. A built-in GPS orients SkyTag so it knows its own location. It can then identify aircraft “that are at the appropriate altitude for your green laser.”
Excerpts from the description:
- “Stop worrying about things like mandatory jail time and social isolation and play the intriguing game of SkyTag today.”
- “Successful back-to-back tags might even earn you a complimentary visit from your local FBI office!”
- “Arrives with a voucher you can redeem to get 5% off your first fine of $25,000 or greater!”
A note states “Is this product legal? … CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO!” This leads to a file-not-found page (Error 404), as does clicking the “Add to Cart” button.
