The "lasors" :)

Ofcourse, when one recieves a laser line generating device, it is one's finest duty to document this posetion :).

In the following some images of the wonder.

A hand and a laser.

Me happy whith the laser.

U9 whith the laser. Yes, that is his happy face.

A handheld laser contraption before comletion.
The housing is a battery shell, which besides from being big, housed the smaller 3v battery, the white thingy also in the foto. As you might can see, there is not much room to the wire and switch.

A very crude fully functional handheld laser contraption. Erhm work on a more... mainstream look are being caried out.

Let There Be Light

This is the first post.

We concluded after the first group meeting that we will in fact do the 3D reconstruction of objects using a laser scanner and camera. Hence the name of the blog.

This blog will be our diary during the course of the semester.

This first day we received two World Star Tech FLL series red laser line modules (fll5-3.5p-635-**) which emit a red thin line that we will use to construct 3D models of arbitrary shaped objects. We quickly gathered some components from the component shop (battery, wired and push-buttons) and created a nice hand-held scanning device.
