A laser relay is a test element in the map editor. This test element is very similar to a Laser Catcher, but instead, is not attached to a wall or ceiling. The relay is placed on the floor, and a laser can pass through it. This could be useful for using the laser to enable multiple objects at once.

The Laser Relay is placed by dragging the icon from the left hand panel into the desired position in the editor. It cannot be placed on a wall adjacent to the entrance or exit or an Observation Room. The Laser Relay's position within a tile can be tweaked by dragging the diamond-shaped gadget that appears when it is selected (five positions).
