Well, you got me guys. I took the bait, I drank the Kool-aid. I am a wiicamera/laser, lidar, lassiter convert and I am quickly loving the idea. My current problem is with the strength of the laser. Need some, strength that is.
I hit the old Ebay The robot budget is a small as it has ever been so I will have to make do with the "cheap vs time to get your stuff" exchange and order from China. I have found a lot of cheap laser modules but I would like someone to check my math here.
