I finally got around to hacking all of the laser parts off the laser scissors we used for Tea & Lasers at GameCity last year. Having a bandsaw makes it a lot easier, and we now have a lot of spare pairs of scissors.
A part of this was also testing the red laser diodes that came out of them. We now have a set of very bright ones ready to go into the next version, and will be building it over the next few months. There are a lot of ways we could improve on the last iteration, one being sensors and beams that are easier to position. I’ll make sure to put what we build up on instructables.
In the meantime, anyone want any scissors?
