I'm pretty sure most laser mice use an infrared laser (light with a lower frequency than red light, which the human eye can't detect)

Why would you want to do this anyway? What mouse do you have?

You say it's a 90$ mouse, the Logitech G9 pops into my mind. I have one of these, and it is already pretty awesome...

most do, some use lasers that cross over a little into visible red.

Depends on the strength of the laser.

Green Laser Pointer from Wicked Lasers.

Ha, oh. I see.

Yeah, that most definitely is not going to work, lol.

On topic of popping balloons... apparently you can use the laser diode inside a DVD player to replace the diode of one of those cheap 5$ laser pointers, and it will be powerful enough to pop balloons and burn stuff.

There's a how-to on Metacafe, but I'm too lazy to get it atm.
