Bullseye Torch

torch that's always on target

Bullseye Torch has a bright red laser beam at its centre, surrounded by a circular array of coloured bulbs. This results in a bullseye, contained within coloured rings being placed on anything illuminated by the torch.

Naturally this works best over modest distances as the colours will fade and diffuse at range, but with the centre dot remaining in sharp focus.

With the Bullseye Torch, anything can become a real target of attention.

       Well, laser target designators are Baked and WKTE, but this introduces a nice element of competition.   

       It also makes target shooting at night much more practical.   

       A good deal of inexpensive amusement could be had with one of these devices and, for example, a pistol crossbow.

       //a pistol crossbow//   

       It would be interesting to see how targeting would be affected by refraction through different optical media. For example, if I shone a target on that small carp in the aquarium over there, I bet you couldn't hit it with your pistol crossbow from here.   

       Go on then, show me.

       No. Can't think of anyone who would be satisfied with just one...

       You're right. It was petty of me. I apologise.
