I used the brand new Epilog laser cutter that Instructables recently got
to laser etch an image of my hands onto my laptop keyboard...permanently. Now that's voiding your warranty in DIY style!
I've laser etched more laptops than most since I help operate the Instructables laser cutter at Maker Faire and the Web 2.0 Expo
, however I've never actually etched any of my own computers.
I decided to put my old PowerBook G4 under the laser for a slightly more experimental and complex etch than I've previously done. Luckily, the technique worked, the etching went off without a hitch, and the computer came out of the ordeal completely unharmed.
Typing on top of your own hands is a little freaky, but I'm definitely enjoying it, and so far, it's prevented any writers block because I'm always ready to type!
