Radio Shack contest voting is live!

Vote! Team West: Byte Blaster

Byte Blaster 

A few months ago several members of Ace Monster Toys worked together to create a laser pointer shooting gallery as an entry into a Radio Shack / Popular Mechanics sponsored contest. If you saw our booth at Maker Faire then you saw the awesome results of that collaberation. Well, the contest is now live and I suggest you check out the voting site to give yourself and Ace Monster Toys a chance at $1000 prize.

Smaug Lives!

After some very careful bubble removing work (pictured above), we fired up the laser and it lased! We successfully burned a spot on a piece of paper. Still to do:

1. Hook up current meter, to ensure tube isn't being over-driven

2. Clean & Align mirrors & lens

3. Level the bed (might already be ok)
