laser beam

LIDAR, LRF, etc HELP!

So I love lasers. Really, really love them. I've bought about a dozen different types of laser modules (green/red) to play with on my next bot. However I'm at a loss as to where to even begin on using them as more than just a "frickin laser beam", and have it actually DO SOMETHING!

LASERS - just a bit about them

Just a couple ideas for those who are set on experimenting with lasers.

FIRST and most important: Lasers are dangerous. I am not espousing that you do anything with lasers, as you can be blinded BEFORE YOU CAN BLINK, if you use lasers stronger than the common "keychain" laser pointers.
