Exclamation Can lasers become banned because of these people?

These are people who might get lasers banned because of their ignorance.
at 0:46 , no safety goggles while working with high powered laser diodes (extracted from C@s1o projector)

Those guys appear to really know what are they doing. You really think they would allow a mishap as stupid as having a beam reflect into their eyes while building something advanced as this?

Video looks good in my book.

Seriously, all this "Goggles-or-die" attitude is slowly getting on my nerves.
Sure, we need to get soem sort of public awareness on the roll, lasers are not toys.

But this?

Default Re: Stupi

If they used all the diodes in a certain projector, its at least ~20 Watts of power, which is no joke. It is not "Goggles-or-die" its the fact that when working on a professional build, at least some eye safety is considered.
The video is really nice tough. I just wanted to point out the fact that they are not wearing glasses.

Default Re: Stupi

(Eudaimonium); agree.

I believe that most of the regulars on the forum are safety conscious. At least to an *acceptable* degree.

If one is going to operate a laser outside, and there is a *reasonable* expectation that the laser will not hit anyone's eyes, an aircraft, etc., or that there will be an accident, then fine. One doesn't need to wear safety goggles *every moment* that a laser is turned on or *under ALL circumstances* when a laser is operating.

There is a ... "weird" ... trend lately in many posts, almost like a kind of borderline hysteria. This kind of thing happens.

In my *opinion*, there is nothing in that video that would lead to the banning of lasers... at least due to lack of safety goggles.

Let me amplify that...

IF lasers are going to be banned, it will *probably* NOT be over safety goggles!

It will be due to the immature jerks who point lasers at aircraft, people, animals (except certain insects... I admit to murdering insects), cars, *law enforcement officials*, etc., all because they think that it is "funny".

Default Re: Can lasers become banned because of these people?

Sorry, my bad. I was not emphasizing on the fact that lasers will be banned because of them not wearing goggles (I just pointed that out). I was more concerned that they were pointing it to a building which looked like some sort of hotel.

It might as well be an anbandoned office building or something like that.

I guess not wearing goggles would be required if the point was to actually see the beam you're projecting - its just a matter of making sure there is nothing that reflects in back at your eyes. I'm quite sure they did wear goggles while building and testing that thing, but once its in working order and outdoors, there is little use for eye protection.

If they put it in a moving head like that it's probably going to be used in a laser show where no one will be using goggles... I imagine they know what they are doing...

Default Re: Can lasers become banned because of these people?

Also, I could be wrong but the moment you mention the guy without goggles,
First- he is looking at the computer, and
second, the beam is pointed straight up into the night sky. At 20W of power, I'd imagine the beam only illuminating the sorroundings as seen in the video.

So this entire debate is... not exactly useful.

As mentioned, it's not people without goggles that get lasers banned. It's kids with cheapo 532nm greens pointing them at aircrafts.

No, but they would help when working with such a powerful laser indoors.

Beam on the wall from 20W laser is sure as he|| going to get you blind the moment you take a look at it (or so I'd imagine).
Goggles would be more than mandatory... if it were not for the fact that they have already completed that laser and have it pointed at the sky.

Goggles are literally essential when you are alligning stuff within system like that, though.
