NXT Laser

NXT Laser

Kevin Cook has a great new page that shows how to put a laser pointer inside the casing of a light sensor. This allows you to have the robot "shoot" targets, or generally be cool. The how-to is easy to follow, and doesn’t take advanced electronics knowledge. Just make sure that the robot does not point the laser in your eyes (or the eyes of anyone nearby)!

Do not stare in the laser

Perhaps to avoid confusion: this is a laser pointer, not a laser ranger. You cannot measure the distance of obstacles using this NXT laser.

Will this one "turn" on and off with the bot?

Will it be "controllable" via software?:P

I believe the laser sensor can be turned on and off from within your NXT software.
