Spotted on the MAKE Flickr pool: Mark Demers, of SpikenzieLabs, created this simple, handsome laser-cut LCD stand to interface (via I2C) with Arduino. He says he plans on adding some cabinet lighting, via LEDs, to make the etched labels near the buttons more visible.

    First, I like the case. But I have to ask, is it really important that this project is laser cut? Is it critical to the construction? The project could probably be made more cheaply and easily with more basic carpentry techniques. But I guess then we wouldn’t get to play with frickin’ lasers.

    Lasers make everything better. They even work on sharks quite well. I know I’m going to get beaten for making an Austin Powers reference.
