    I'd like to have this for a magic trick:

    A laser pointer rigged to go on and off by remote control.
    Is there a remote-controlled relay that I could wire into the switch ?

    Jeeze, there are dozzens of ways to close contacts by remote control.

    Where I live, Conrad has(had?) a nice unit.

    That's helpful.
    Especially in a group called BASICS.

    Really sorry Mitch but even in basics we expect that at least you would do
    some research.
    Its not that hard to find many solutions to your problem.
    Find some. Ask questions about what you found.

    Go to page 5 or 6. He has a 1 ch remote control available for like
    $15.00. Hope this helps.
  7. I think it's a bigger issue than that he may not have done any research.

    His question was pretty vague, and any solution depends on the description.
    If it can't properly be described, then others can't very well supply a
    suitable solution.

    The answer was on par with the question.

    We don't have a clue what the poster wants. Does he merely want a switch
    that is a few inches away from the laser pointer, does he want it controlled
    with wires, or radio, or infrared?

    The actually "switch" is easy, a relay or even a transistor. But controlling
    it depends on the details we don't yet have.
