Look's like Dr. Evil's plan has finally been achieved: sharks with frickin' laser beams. muahahaha. But seriously, why did a scientist just waste grant money putting a low-power beam on a shark's fin? It doesn't even have a camera. Dr. Tipple (the creator) originally wanted to test out a line of clamps and saw attaching the laser to it as an opportunity to gauge both how sharks' reacted to the beams (they were attracted to it) and to track their movements, providing better understanding of how their bodies work.
