looking for something geeky but stylish for Christmas? Why not trying Adafruit's
laser services, an appointment only laser etching service in New York
City/Manhattan, to get your Laptop, iPod, cell phone or any other gadget laser
Phillip Torrone (better known as pt), an editor at Make magazine and Limor Fried, a
former fellow at the tech-focused art studio Eyebeam R&D joined forces and
created this venture.
Pricing starts at US$ 100 for Laptops and US$ 30 for smaller devices like iPods
and cell phones.
To make an appointment, or if you have questions - email us
laser(at)adafruit.com. Adafruit is currently booking time slots available in
late December and January.
Oh, and if you are not it NYC but you are interested in this business idea: pt
and Limor Fried designed this business as "open source" in other words, they are
giving away how to do all this so someone else can start a biz and run one -
since they don't want to do this for a living, but they want to see a laser
cutter in more places and teach folks how to use the equipment. Something you
can call "Franchise 2.0" :-)
