      Yup, I'd love to see this scheme work, and it really shouldn't be that
      mechanically. But, it probably takes an FPGA to transmit the bit stream
      to the laser in sync with the mirror. There was a blog on a DIY PCB
      site about a machine using this scheme to expose PCB resist directly
      with a UV laser. I think he did it using the DMA hardware on a
      Beagle Board, Rasberry Pi or maybe even an Arduino. So, it may
      be that one of the system on a chip boards could do it with minimal
      additional hardware.
