We always imagined laser engraving involving a huge, room size laser, people in lab coats and some sort of super villain in the corner, so imagine our surprise when we came across the Cubiio compact laser engraver on Kickstarter!
This neat little gadget allows you to engrave and even cut multiple materials all via a smartphone app. The Cubiio app allows you to upload your G-Code or picture design, align your material and then preview it’s intended path. If you’re happy, you can set it on it’s merry way and within a matter of minutes your design will be complete. Cool huh?
The device works by combining a laser source with two mirrors which deflect the laser. The small embedded computer then converts your sketches/photos into digital commands which tilt the mirrors at the correct angle to produce your perfect design.
The Cubiio has already smashed it’s Kickstarter goal of $25,000 and should be available from November.
