Step 2: Circumvent the safety

Our Epilog has a safety feature that will turn off the laser whenever the lid is opened. The lid contains magnets that activate a hall effect sensor inside the machine. To get around this, I taped a magnetic rubix cube die over the sensor.


<p>This is AWESOME!, I will try it if i ever get a hold of a laser cutter.</p>
<p>lol typo</p>
<p>goodness gracious this is one of the STUPIDEST IDEA EVER!!! why?</p>
<p>7 years later</p>
<p>Do you have any photos after it healed, but before it faded?</p>
<p>is that a faint robot shaped scar I see?</p>
The robot was on the left hand, so probably not.
<p>Errr Inducing surface burns with ionizing radiation (yes I know they use lasers for tattoo removal, it's a different wavelength)<br><br>I guess there are no cures for stupid....</p>
<p>that is f*cking stupid.......i will never do that...</p>
Purposely inducing 2nd degree burns smart
<p>Ouch! I don't think I'd be able to hold still for this! Interesting laser application for sure!</p>
I don't really want skin cancer so nah
<p>I can't believe you did that! Please check out the SURVIVAL rates of melanoma. Please.</p>
<p>Not really seeing the point of this tattoo method. If you're ready to take on the laser, why not just make a regular tattoo (better looking / soft of less painful) and then just laser it off at some point if you don't like it. </p>
<p>is that permanent?</p>
<p>congrats! now you have SKIN CANCER :)</p>
<p>Oh my. If my mate sees this it will end badly, lol, he loves a laser but isn't very bright.</p>
I imagine this is very permanent
It's not permanent at all it goes away like a normal scab
<p>looks permanent</p>
<p>permannent it is</p>
<p>permannent it is</p>
<p>How long will it last??</p>
<p>is it safe?</p>
<p>no idea</p>
<p>yeah its safe enough</p>
but his I is not thinking. be clear of tattoo can longer day (s) will have its turn to be on 50 50 ailing by case
it can be seen that the tattoo is done with extreme precision. but the major problem (if not especially (s) infection (s)) but cancerous diseases related to laser.'s made 1% good point against 99% of bad point
Skin cancer yayyyyy
<p>This is actually therapeutic for horses and is called pin firing. Equine vets actually burn the horse flesh with a soldering iron instrument (used to be done by a blacksmith) points over an injury in the shin of the leg to ramp up the healing process (apparently minor strains/sprains/fractures weren't enough to trigger a full-blown immune response). Some vets use freeze burning with LN2 but the hair grows out white later. Thoroughbred race horses used to have this done - locally anesthetize the region first with a needle in many places - although this guy was braver (no local anesthetic was listed under step #1 in ingredients).</p>
<p>Fortunately Darwin rules...</p>
<p>humm ouch?</p>
This is AWESOME!, I will try it if i ever get a hold of a laser cutter.
Yeah.....don't want to do that.
This is the kind of idea, were it could be great... or just stupid.
why? WHY!?!?
u must want that little robot REALLY BAD.
dude, thats just dumb.
OMG How stupid and dangerours is this??? This is my first 1 Star rate! <br>The Glas is a security feature. If it is open, you can damage you eyes, not only the skin. AND you cannot see the laser! <br>
You should probably not put anything on it to heal except for a bandage. This is because unlike a tattoo, you are trying to cause a scar. The aloe or polysporin or vitamin E ointments prevent scarring. I would also like to add that you should begin this process by disinfecting the area that you are lasing with dettol or 99% isopropanol. If you do use anything to soothe the area afterwards, make it vaseline or lotion. I'd recommend vaseline for your purposes, as it will soothe the burn without preventing scarring.
I have heard be exposed to lasers for long periods of time can give you skin cancer.
I have heard that exposure to lasers for very short periods of time can remove appendages: <br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=frX00n3gngU">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=frX00n3gngU</a><br/>

This has become a very long conversation.
If you got a super strong laser (future?) then it's possible, but how do you make a laswer that strong only last about a metre? (light sabers, I laugh at you!)
