Aerosol handle with laser designator

Pssssst ....
  [vote for,

When spraying insecticide from an aerosol can, accurately enveloping the target in a noxious cloud is highly satisfying.

However, aerosol nozzles differ in performance and accuracy.

BorgCo engineers have designed a clip-on plastic handle which will attach to a range of sizes of aerosol can. A trigger mechanism presses the valve when required. On the top of the handle is a laser diode in an aimable mounting. The handle contains the batteries.

Pulling the trigger to the first click activates the laser; press harder, and the spray is operated. The laser can be aimed using adjustment screws to centre in the spray pattern at any given range.

One shot, one kill ...

       I like this because I am forever bombing my kitty with bug spray, when I see an evil spider. 'Cause he likes to sit and watch them, so then he gets caught in the spray. Yay, you must bring this to fruition.

       No such thing.

       "Pavlov's Cat" that runs away from a laser pointer.   

       (which begs the existence of Schroedinger's Bird: you might not know if it's dead or alive, but that's because it flew out the window when you tried to put it in the box)

       It's dead. Definitely. Trust us on this.

       back catalogishness, I thought powerpainter sprayers should have laser guides so people could spray superevenly, or just have a computer do it.

       This idea is now fully Baked, as a one-off prototype, and functions extremely well.
