Hack a Dead Computer into a Burning Laser!

This video shows you how to hack a broken computer into a burning laser for just a few bucks! With this simple tutorial, you can use that old computer that is collecting dust for something fun. This setup will give you around 250mW. Wear goggles when using this laser!

A drill press would best best, but I just used a hand drill. I started with small bits and changed bits gradually until I got to 1/2″. This is the best way to go about drilling the heatsink. *If you have an open can laser diode, take care not to let dust get inside of the diode! *If you don’t want to build a driver, just make the module found in this video and hook that up to the power supply. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_VrNDe… http://hackaday.com/2010/09/30/build-… http://www.gearlog.com/2010/10/hack_t… http://pcbheaven.com/opendir/index.ph… Check out http://laserpointerforums.com to learn more about laser pointers, lasers, and laser pointer companies!
