Watch lasers track bubbles to the beat of Daft Punk | The Verge.

I love that the simple addition of bubbles make this fully 3d, and with refraction.

LaserOrigami Uses a Laser Cutter to Create 3D Objects Faster than 3D Printers | Inhabitat – Sustainable Design Innovation, Eco Architecture, Green Building.

Pretty clever. They defocus the laser to heat up the plastic, which then bends (by gravity). Many, many times faster than standard rapid prototyping.

Also has a pen tool for marking cuts by hand.

Freehand lasercutting.

I like the way it interprets your gesture and regularizes it. Note how this thing leapfrogs over the (obvious?) application of smart-pens-for-CAD, and goes right into fabrication.
