DIY Laser Ball is 21st century human cat toy

If there's one criticism we've always had about laser pointers it's that only one person can run the risk of blindness at a time; thank goodness for tinkerer Matthew Leone's DIY Laser Ball project, which opens the door to up to 14 lasers.

You know the sort that has more money tied up in wheels and stereo gear than the car is worth even though the paint is falling off the car. An artist named Nik Nowak has taken mobile stereo gear to the next level. Notice I didn’t say automotive stereo gear, Nik didn’t use a car or truck for his stereo.
