    waw, many thanks for the info. No, we defenitely don't want to put things on fire! Nor do we want to harm people. Also we would like an of the shelf solution is that exists. We don't have the knowledge/capacity to build/maintain something like this ourselfs.

    That is actually an off the shelf product from many vendors. Lap-laser is one. Virtek is another. carterlaser.com comes to mind. I have scrapped a few Virtek products for parts minus the controller, they are incredibly well built and designed. usually the keywords to search by are...

    A laser that is powerful enough to be easily seen in normal room lighting, when scanned onto a large surface area like that is very dangerous. The static beam will burn you, could set things on fire and if it hits you in the eye, it will blind you. That being said, applications like you...

    Certainly doable with a laser, a set of scanners and control signals. The questions are what wavelength (color), what power and safety regulations.

    Hello All, I have a question where possibly a Laser Display may be a solution. But because of my lack of knowledge about this hardware I turned to this forum. At our company we produce stone slabs, at the quality check we need to mark in wich 'zone' on the slab there is a defect. For example A4...

    Hi guys, I am fairly new to lasers, having only owned some Laserworld low end models, however I am looking to upgrade. I have been looking at some of the reviews for a Laserworld DS-3000RGB and some people have been saying that the scanners they provide with their lasers do not reach 40K @8...

    I guess it's fair to say there have been good and bad things happen as a result of Covid. I (we) also had the added ordeal of having our house completely destroyed on March 28th 2020. There were some benefits to living in a rental house with only the essential things. I had a huge basement...

    I will have to schedule a time to go through the boxes find the aom/driver pairs. I need to take pictures of the fiber lasers/drivers/telescopes eventually but they are not visible so I wasn't in too much of a rush (until I want to build an engraver to build photon sieves). -Adam

    I used to ride my 10 speed to K-mart and play with the demo in the store for hours. I actually wrote my first BASIC program on that. It had a speech synthesizer that could read text. That was pretty cool.

    I remember I got my C=64 from Children's Palace for $199.95. It came out at $600, I think and dropped to $400 soon after that. So $200 was a solid deal. I ordered peripherals through the mail from the big mail order electronics vendors. I think it was J&R Music World. I got a floppy drive,...

    I had a datasette for my Commodore back in the day, but a floppy drive was way beyond my budget back then. The ZX81 allowed you to use any old cheap cassette recorder for data storage.
