What is a laser like that were can i get one an whats the laser called

No such thing !!!! The only way to see any laser is if it is shining through particulate matter like smoke, dust or fog or is reflecting off it's intended target. And then it has to be a wavelength that is visible to the naked eye.

Get a laser with a green light. Youll be able to see it from all angles at almost any time.

EDIT: anytime at night and a little during the day. Also, these lasers are generally much more dangerous to the eyes. So BE CAREFUL with them.

Sorry, it doesn't matter what color it is, you can't see the actual beam unless it is shining through something as above. It sure wouldn't be good if the beam led right back to you so the bad guy knew where you were.

In fact this is true of any beam of light, laser or not. You cannot see the light unless it is reflected off something.

Semantics aside, the green laser beams are visible at night and in low light situations.

Again, I am sorry, but the ONLY way a beam of ANY LIGHT can be seen is if the air has some dust or other particulate matter in it. This has been demonstrated in every high school physics class and even by astronauts in space. Try it some clear night. Shine the laser up. You will see nothing, or if you do, you will only see a few sparkles from the beam reflecting off dust or pollen.

You're 100% correct but I suspect its going to be a tough sell:rolleyes:
