• Steampunk and desktop laser cutters

    by  • December 23, 2007 • Trivia and Media • 0 Comments

    Seems to me the key to Steampunk is going to be cheap desktop laser cutters. Once these things are cheap enough that a $500 unit can do 0.5mm thick brass, then it becomes possible to laser cut gears meaning that you can fab machines of arbitrary complexity relatively easily.

    Could be fun.

    flattr this!
