Griffin Technology has quietly introduced iBeam, a set of two small iPod attachments that turn the music player into a flashlight or a class IIIA laser pointer. The iBeam sells for $19.99 and will begin shipping by the end of October. Both accessories come with a protective snap-on cap that can be attached to any keychain.

“The iBeam flashlight is surprisingly functional when a quick beam of light is required in a dark car or doorstep. The iBeam laser pointer is an amazingly powerful red laser beam that is capable of being seen over a quarter of a mile away. Need we say how much fun this could be?”

Oh come on guys, toys is toys!  I’m going to wait for apple to phase the laser bean to the beat of the music and add some groovy colors—then I can stick the light directly into my pupil and see all the wacky lights while dancing!

Sure it’s handy to have a laser pointer or a torch, but it’s even handier to have one that’s not stuck on the end of your iPod. It would be silly to buy one of these when you can get one that fits in the palm of your hand for half the price.
