Makers and hobbyists but would like to do small laser engravings may be interested in a new compact desktop laser engraver called the Cubiio which is launched by Kickstarter this week and has already raised nearly $200,000 with still 35 days remaining on its campaign.
Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about this palm size laser engraver that can be easily set up and uses a picture or G-Code file to create an engraving. As well as coming with its own companion application that allows you to draw directly on your tablet screen and then laser engraved on a wide variety of different materials including wood, leather, cardboard and more.
