    Re: Laser

    Just search Google, the first result already gives detailed video instructions.

    Watch your safety, however: taking apart DVD readers and playing around with lasers is potentially dangerous!

    This actually looks like a really cool project! I just ordered housing for the diode, and my DVD burner is dissembled.

    Re: Laser

    It is very cool indeed :)

    But again, take enough safety precautions both when building it (you're working with lasers and high voltage equipment) and when using it (it's not just an ordinary laser pointer).
