Superfluous DIY Technology

We have just bought a laser level. Who needs a spirit level when you can just stick a laser to the wall? (Well actually there are a pair of spirit levels built-in so you can be sure that your laser line is, err, level)

can you briefly explain how it works? I imagine that if you put a laser on a normal spirit level then it wont be any more accurate - just larger. Do you bang a nail in the wall and let it hang vertical with the laser coming out the sides?

If I have the idea right you shove it on a tripod or something then use the projected line instead of a pencil line.

It's a small device mounted on a swivel base with a cross pair of levels in the device body. You can stick it to the wall with the included super-blutac or mount it on a tripod...

Was this in the Argos sale? Noticed they had one cheap, but they'd sold out at the branch I went to yesterday.

No, something we found at Homebase when looking for a new screwdriver...
