A Nerds Menagerie: Art

Let’s take a minute and look on in awe…

This specialized laser system at LasX Industries in Minnesota is capable of drawing on surfaces at a rate of up to 6 meters per second. In this example, a design by Andy Gikling is executed in a two-step process. First, the laser moves in raster mode, but at the 1:40 mark things get insane as the system switches to a “vector” process and starts drawing all over the place in real time. wow!
