Watch a Robotic Laser Draw a 100,000-Vector Design in Under 3 Minutes

Now, I’m no artist, but I know when to be impressed. Above is LasX Industries Inc.’s LasX’s “Lightguide v5” laser control software at work. It takes a 100,000 vector CAD file based on a work of art by Andy Gikling, and then fully renders it on a blackboard in under three minutes. Wow.

I’m so amazed at this laser beam etching at reportedly 6-meters-per-second that I’ll stress this: the video above and GIF below are in real-time.

Now that’s speed.
