Spotlight on The Da Vinci Code

Well, less of a spotlight and more of a flashlight on the Da Vinci Code.
In the trailer for the movie we see that the lovely Audrey Tautou
has what in her hand? None other than the Inova X5 which can be seen here.

What's is so good about it apart from looking really cool? It has ultraviolet LEDs in it. These are not very useful for your average flashlight user, but different products react differently to the UV light. Wandering around in the dark with a UV torch in hand is a little like being dropped on an alien world. It's the most useful useless gadget I own.
Did you know that cat urine fluoresces under UV light? You will probably have seen these torches being used on the police TV show CSI, but they are great even if you're not a cop.

Warning: Never look into the beam with UV lights because it is bad for your eyes. This warning on the sticker should serve as a helpful reminder. Don't take it off.

Are you one of the 3 people left on the planet who hasn't read the book?
