Pelican case meets laser cutter

This is for a Make: television project Tod Kurt and I built — a Wii nunchuck / Arduino “flight recorder” (more about the project to come). We used Tod’s Epilog laser cutter to cut out a rectangle from the top of a Pelican case, so that I could mount a serial LCD panel there.
This turned out much neater than my Dremel cut version. The best part is the thick bed of evil yellow smoke that curls forth when you open the lid. I’m pretty sure this smoke is good for you, so I inhaled of it deeply.
