One of our awesome members, Dan Harden, brought in an old Macbook screen and had a go at etching designs into it using our laser cutter. The SYN Shop logo was etched at 3% power, 100% speed. We think it came out great as a test, what do you think? I really want to etch my own Macbook now.

Thanks Dan for taking video footage of the etching in progress!

Blinking, fading, and color changing lights are a standard for eye catching goggles. This being said, I decided to change it up a bit and make a set that would engage the wearer in the production of sound.

I was searching through DIY project ideas when I found an instructable on how to make an Arc Reactor from misc plastic pieces (Make an Iron Man Arc Reactor). The coiled wire and blue lights were so appealing to look at that I decided to give the new laser cutter a try and make a set of lenses (for a new pair of goggles) that looked like mini ‘reactors’.

Yes, the Ideas of March... ;)

The world is abuzz with credit card sized computers that are inexpensive and easy enough for home hobbyists, artists, and professionals to use.  One such computer is the Arduino, created by a group of Italian researchers and released freely to the world.
