Well, you can't really point with a wall of light.
No you can't, but there are good options that can do both!
Here is a real budget tip for you.
This light can be focused to a spot light or to a broad flood. He can have a good pointer (square LED projected image at full focus) and a back up for the headlight in one (flood zoom).
This zoom focus light will work well, and is a very compact size using a single AA battery. (also 14500 too!)
It is on sale for only $9.99 (buy more) and includes free shipping from Asia. I have bought 4 for gifts and one for myself. Everyone loves them. They are well built, bright, and have a very strong clip
that is very useful for this adaptation.
By modifying a 2nd hand store baseball cap with a stiff visor like this:
Measure 1.5 inch (mark) from the forward edge of the visor, and 2.0 inches(mark). Cut out a rectangle that half inch by one quarter inch wide with a sharp razor knife.
Now you just slide the clip into the slot with the light shining forward. Adjust the zoom to wide angle and start caving. You don't need to hang it on a hat, just use it hand held if you want.
It does take 3-4 weeks to show up at your home, but is one of the best deals I have seen. I will probably buy more!
