Does anyone know if this is a laser pointer? If so, who makes this? It's very low profile.

Actually green laser is $399.99 and red laser is $189.00. Glad to know I'm not the only one failing in love with this sniffy little thing.

The green Lasermax can be had for as little as $320 on ebay right now. I've seen them as low as $310, brand new.

Does anyone know how visible these green lasers are? Can you actually see the laser beam like the video below?

Oh yes. Green lasers are quite popular in the amateur astronomy world for this very reason. Amateur astronomers use green lasers to point out objects in the sky, and the beam is readily visible. They are actually considered something of a nuisance, and are usually prohibited at larger star parties, both for eye safety reasons and for interfering with other peoples' viewing.

edit: and when I say readily visible, I mean by the dark-adapted eye. In the grand scheme of things the beam itself is dim.
