There are certain kinds of spectacles which can show the lazer light of which you speak, even if it would not ordinarily be in the visible spectrum,
which makes it possible to circumvent such a system. However, the system demonstrated by the MIT people in the video, would not be detectable in the
same way, and infact, would be incredibly difficult to detect, if the method were perfected, and the range therefore extended, at which useful data
could be gleaned.
The use of a long lens might extend the range of this technique, and at that point, not only would no conversation be totally safe, but even those
who would have access to the sort of surviellance operation identification gear that intelligence agency personnel sometimes get outfitted with, would
have serious difficulty in knowing for certain, that they were not being recorded, even if they were out in the sticks.
Every blade of grass, every window, every table, cupboard, bag of chips, empty plastic bag, every steaming cup of coffee could be a microphone, a
microphone that you cannot baffle. This discovery invalidates every single anti-surveillance countermeasure, that I have ever heard of.
