Laser Engraver Anti-Blindness Shield

While noodling around with my laser engraver to make the front panel for the photobooth enclosure, I finally got to the point where the old shoebox I tacked up in front of it to prevent people from going blind just didn't seem good enough. So I made a wooden drop-down shield to block the view, and laser-engraved this little plaque for the front of the shield. They aren't wired up yet, but the idea is that the two red lamps will be lit up when the engraver is running.

RPi Photobooth – Mark 2

For this year's Father's Day cookout, I rebuilt the Raspberry Pi Photobooth from the ground up. This time I built a nicer enclosure too - one with a laser engraved front panel (using my homebuilt laser engraver!) and the RPi camera module. It worked out great - it was light enough to mount on a tripod, which made the whole thing a bit more functional and polished. Soon I plan to post a bunch of the photos we captured with it!
