    Am pretty sure that SparkFun got this without the euro-zone VAT. You don’t have to pay VAT when exporting from the euro-zone, most EU-suppliers subtract this automatically and/or you can claim the ~20% back.

    Hi Nick and Robert, fun to watch – as always.

    For security application the swipe-type reader has its advantage since you cannot directly – or at easily lift and duplicate the finger print. Would you know whether a photo-copied version of your index finger works as well? Another video of how to hack finger print readers in general would be cool - or would you get into troubles with that? In any case, very nice sensor description and looks useful to be used in other non-security applications.

    Very nice and affordable laser!

    Got it up to a measured 20 mW for a brief moment (didn’t dare to burn it permanently). Can confirm that

    • there is no effective filtering for the 1064 nm component,
    • a spectral width of about 532+-2 nm, and that
    • at 5 mW the TEM00 is dominant but not the only mode visible.

    Wow, that’s sounds like a fun activity.

    As a alternative for those who have done a ‘holiday on a farm’, maybe you could offer this as a ‘kitting holiday at SparkFun’. I’d sign up…

    Am impressed by the level of QA and team spirit you achieve!

    Soldering LEDs will never be the same…
    Wish there’d be larger versions, RGBs or with 1 mm surface-mounted LED’s!

No public wish lists :(
