A laser pointer pen is a useful tool to have on hand in a number of common situations, both personal and professional. Here are a few common uses for laser pens.
You can use laser pointer pens when playing certain children’s games. The idea of a moving light or target when playing may excite and motivate young children. For instance, if you have a large group of kids you can play an updated game of “It” by having a leader of the game shine the pen on someone’s shirt. The first person who finds and tags the other child with the light wins a point and the person with the most points after a certain amount of time wins a prize. Brainstorm your own unique games. If you use a laser pointer pen for play, be careful not to shine the light in anyone’s eyes or face.
One of the most common uses for a laser pointer pen is for conducting presentations. When giving a business or school presentation that requires you to display information on a screen, you can use the pen to highlight important points. This is particularly helpful if want to draw the attention of your attendees to specific pieces of information during the presentation. For instance, if you’re giving a presentation to a group of potential investors and want to drive home a point about the potential return on investment (ROI) for your idea, you can place the beam of light on that figure while explaining your estimate.
Analysis and Training
If you work in a job or field that requires you to analyze items on a regular basis, this is another circumstance where a laser pointer pen is useful. You can use the pen to point out certain elements of the subject you’re analyzing. For instance, if you teach a class of prospective mechanics you can point the light at various parts of a car that need work. If you work or go to school in the science field, a laser pointer pen is helpful in highlighting specific items for lab assignments when explaining your theories.
