LaserBoy is looking for beta testers!
- LaserBoy is an OpenSourse Linux laser art application and programming
API. What it does is not as important of a question as how it does
it. It is a set of C++ objects representing every hierarchical aspect
of what laser vector art is according to the ILDA file standard,
including multiple palettes.
A set of scalar objects are defined with a full compliment of
overloaded arithmetic operators. Container objects are all based upon
inherited STL vector templates. All of this is packaged into a single
application-ready-object, with a rich cache of functions, capable of
displaying itself at any resolution, any angle of rotation, w/wo
points enhanced, w/wo blanking, and w/wo a very unique double cursor
that allows sections of points to be selected and modified.
Very soon, it will be re-released. There are too many new features in
this release to write about.
In order to use this code you need a Linux box.
The kernel must be built to support a video card as a frame buffer
device. You must be root, have the code, and be able to type "make".
This code is designed to turn your Linux box into a display server.
The laserboy application is run from a shell on another machine.
LaserBoy is free and will always be free.
These are pictures of a recent purchase. I got this on January 17th.
It's pretty crusty in the photos. I took them as soon as I got it
home. I cleaned it up nicely and it works very well!
Thanks Rob! You are the man.
