I Was Bored, So I Made This

20 01 2010

I was sitting in front of my Mac, reading blogs, when my eyes alighted on a laser diode I had lying around. Immediately, a thought came into my mind, so I grabbed my electrical tape, a spare USB cable, and the diode, headed out to my soldering station, and fired up my soldering iron. Five minutes later, this was born! (Sorry for the low quality photos)

My Brand New USB Laser Pointer!

The Laser Plugged In And In Action!

Pointing It At The Wall

Other than the fact that I didn’t use the whole length of the USB cable (facepalm) I’m happy with it! As it doesn’t have a definitive use, it’s awesome! 😉
