    Dave & Dr Phil look at how Extech’s new TL100 Laser Test Probes work.

    FYI: The electronics beanbag was custom made, with material from here:

      The best part is the + and – lasers on your PDF cause using just one would be ridiculous.

      No, I won’t buy it. I’m not going to be fooled AGAIN today. :P

      I am willing to trade a probe against a set of super fast super rare Signetics WOM (write only memory) chips.

      I don’t buy the voltage measurement via laser probes, but there is for indirectly measuring current with a laser test probe.

      Lame. That 555 one was much better. At least you had to TRY it.

      (It’s lame when you realize it’s a joke within the first 30 seconds of seeing the video).

      There is a device called a Laser Voltage Probe (LVP). It works by measuring the absorption of light in high electric fields. Google “lvp laser voltage probe”
