Grossman described one customer's unusual use of its Spy Gear Lazer Tripwire: "You put sensors all around the house and they communicate back to one handheld unit, and it tells you when one has been tripped. Somebody wrote us a letter once that they had found their long-lost hamster because they set this up, and it tripped it. That's cool."

We were tempted to deck out our own cubicles with Wild Planet’s Spy Gear Lazer Tripwire (US$19.99 to US$29.99) to prevent co-worker sneak-ups, but we definitely see how this would be perfect for boys who want to keep nosy siblings out of their rooms. Users line up three laser-emitting/receiving pods to form an invisible perimeter, and an alarm goes off the second it’s breached. A misting of water reveals a bright red laser line that trained intruders can duck under to breach the established boundary undetected.
