Actually, Geoffrey, you are WRONG about the metal "burning" laser. What do you think industrial lasers are? How about laser cutters? As for a laser within this guy's price range, meh. The technology doesn't exist. Not to mention that either the lasers are freakin' huge or the melting metal (MELT metal, not BURN) isn't impressive. I agree with Geof. Go with the balloon popping, paper burning kind.
