Laser tripped at 5:09, Computer and laser stolen at 5:10. Thief and friends laughing their butts off using your twitter account to make you look foolish.

I don't wish to be tweeted. Thank you very much! No, I am not a criminal, tbh.

It's using an embedded system (Arduino), so it's not using an expensive PC. The embedded system is a Arduino Duemilanove, which is a $30 part.

Mind you, it'd be better using an IR laser, as there's less chance of seeing the beam, especially if there's dust around.

Good point. What about X-Ray lasers? Seem like a very cruel invention. Can't remember if they exist, tbh.
