Firefly Portable Laser Lamp This gadget may be small, but it packs a punch! Perfect for adding a magical touch to your garden or adding atmosphere at a house party, it will light up your space with hundreds of small but powerful green laser dots. They reach far and wide, up to 100ft in fact, but still use barely any energy: less than one watt of power. Plug it in using the supplied adaptor, or alternatively, make it portable and power it with four AAA batteries. It’s splash proof but obviously you wouldn’t want to keep it outdoors for a sustained period of bad weather. £39.99 from www.thefowndry.com
