Notes on Real Genius

At the end of the movie they mount a small optical component on Prof. Hathaway's house.  It looks like a retroreflector. That didn't make sense to me, at first.  But then I considered that they may have intended to fire the beam back at the source, damaging it.  This could explain why the laser fails catastrophically at the end of the movie.
