Hi I was looking to find more information on a laser pointer unit. I am developing a system that requires a computer controlled laser pointer. Being a software engineer, I know nothing about lasers, or on a broader scale, little about electronics in general. Basically I need a device that can meet the following requirements.
- The device is to be computer controlled. I wish to send co-ordinates to the device which would then direct the laser to these co-ordinates.
- The device will be approximately 10 foot above a 10 x 10 foot area.
- A human hand WILL come between the laser and the surface. Exposure to the eye is very unlikely.
- It should be accurate to within 10mm or less and the diameter of the point can be from 1mm to 10mm as long as it is visible.
Ultimately I want to buy a few components, put them together, connect them to my PC and be able to feed them co-ordinates. Apologies for being slightly longwinded or blunt, its just I thought it best to list as much detail as possibly first time round. Any help on this subject would be greatly appreciated. Kind regards, Carl Gilbert
