Default Fun with lasers and cellphones ;)

Farted around a bit yesterday at work. Bored with the boring phone, and I keep seeing the NASCAR Nextel phones. Well, I had the right color to begin with, right?






Didn't quite get the back centered. My image had a transparent background that shifted it over, but it ain't bad for 5 minutes worth of prep, and 30 seconds of laser work.

Pretty cool. I don't think I could do that with two weeks and an instruction manual. Good Job Bossman

Ok, I won't sell myself short......I did build the system to make this easy, but I didn't write the software. Funny, you'd think everything I own would be engraved now. But we tend to take these for granted after working with lasers so long.

what you SHOULD have done is engraved a pontiac insignia.
