A while ago I read about medical devices that would stimulate nerves into firing with laser light
so thought I would experiment. Now, seeing as laser pointers that are legal in this country are usually 1mW or less, that wasn't usually going to do the job and get through the dermal layers to tickle the nerve itself. However eBay seems to have no problem selling ons from Hong Kong which, by my estimate must be at least 10mW, to the point that while it doesn't burn or hurt when directed at the skin, you can definitely 'feel' it.

So what to do next? Well, I found the principle was much better demonstrated with spider legs. Flash the laser at their legs while they're walking and they stagger about like a drunken stag night, turn it off again and it's creepy crawly service as usual.
