Guided By the Light

Having trouble cutting a straight line? Try a pair of laser-guided scissors. Click a button on the handle, and it emits a laser beam across whatever you´re slicing. Ideaworks Laser Scissors, $15; jobar.com

Klutz-Proof

Microchip Shot

Slice your drive into the rainforest? A tiny radar chip in each ball communicates with the scanner so you can find it. RadarGolf, $250; radargolf.com Click here for a hands-on review by PopSci's GM.
