Default What do you use your laser (s) for?

What do you use your laser for?

I get the impression that it's or sitting pretty on the desk or something.

Does anyone use theres for more practical applicatons like on a moving part, in the vehicle beaming the sky or for self defense etc?

Here:





Practical enough?


I use mine to help keep myself out of the bars at night. *I use them to keep my mind working and entertained. *I use mine to see just how many colors there are in a cyan beam and how many times I can get the colors to cross. *I use them to draw pretty pictures on the wall. *I use them to entertain my grandchildren.

Practical applications?

Remember, it's a hobby, not a job. *If it was your job, you probably wouldn't enjoy it as much. *There are some who do, (frothychimp comes to mind), but most people don't like doing their jobs as a hobby.

Peace,
dave

I like to use my lasers as toothpicks and back scratchers. They also make wonderful paper weights.

Well said.

Village, is the Xbox 360 diode actually powerful enough to do that?
I was under the impression they are sub 100mW so aren't really packin' heat?

The XBOX 360 HD DVD Add-On player was one of the original sources for the PHR-803T sleds.

Yes it was major overkill in the player, but that didn't seem to bother us.

Ever stare at a fire?

Well I stare at the dot.

I use it to burn unknowing victims so they get startled or think they're being bit from some crazy insect. ;D

I like to build them because its fun.
I like to see the beam.
I like to play with my cats and dog (lower powered).
I like to star point.
I like to use my spirograph because it makes cool shapes.
I like coherent light.
I like lasers mainly for their colorful ambient light.

Ever been bitten by a spider? Down here on the underside of the earth, our spiders are so big they have health bars (can't be bothered to post the pic). I was on school camp and we were hiking through the bush, when I get this sensation like a thorn is in my sock. Then utter intense burning pain! I look down and there's a bloody great hairy thing biting THROUGH MY SOCK! >.< Swelled up like crazy. I flicked it away but my supervising camp dude caught it to make sure it wasn't a funnel web.
