My Sony DSC-F717 has the AF hologram assist. The first time people see it, they think of Predator or Tron and sometimes even freak out as they think it's a blinding laser
that would be interesting, when photoing police, officer do not worry about that red dot it is just my AF assted

Yes, you can do this... but who wants to put on a flash of that size that has at best a 2 meter (6 feet) range of assist with the dim red led output.
The Sigma EF-500 DG Super has an AF assist light range of 29ft. I've used it at 25ft no problem with a K100D+Sigma 17-70. I haven't found a way of using it without the flash firing yet though.
