    Default Open Source Laser Power Meter

    ARGMeter the Open Source Laser Power Meter

    ARGMeter is an open source laser power meter platform for the Arduino. The goal of this project is to give hobbyists access to a DIY LPM design for only the cost of hardware that they can expand and modify to suit their needs. This project has been through many prototypes and many designs, and is finally ready for release.
    Rather than clutter up a thread will all the details I put everything on a website for anyone to use.
    The project is continually under design and additions are made daily, if you see a bug or mistake please PM me or post here so that I may change it.

    This is very interesting. Might have to build me one of these.
