REVIEWS AT A GLANCE
“The Nominal Ocular Hazard Distance – the distance from which a 1,000-mW laser can damage your eye in less than a quarter of a second – is 733 ft (224 m) away. You can even hurt yourself looking at the point where the laser hits the wood as you're etching it, it's so bright.” newatlas.com
LaserCube maybe highly powerful regardless of the compact size and very dangerous regardless of the multiple layers of safety gear - hence one needs to be very careful. With the safety class of 4, it can still burn balloons, skin and eyeballs.
It is also stated in the website that the higher power of 7.5W Ultra risks shattering the glass attenuating filter. Sudden breakage and the power then no longer being attenuated would be a safety hazard.
As a safety feature LaserCube has an internal automatic shutoff mechanism that will switch off your laser and disable battery charging if temperatures exceed 40C, however if you are using the laserCube safety measures needs to be practiced.
“ To get the LaserCube going, you need to attach a special safety dongle, turn it on, then turn a separate safety key, then unscrew the shield from the front and let it drop out of the way, then hook it up to a laptop or a phone and turn it on.” newatlas.com

“Don't expect to show photos or videos with the LaserCube like you can with a conventional home or office projector; its three laser diodes are designed to show bright, colorful outlines rather than any sort of complex detail, which will usually just be shown as flashing, colorful streaks.
Vector graphics and cartoons are your best bet (animations are only supported in .svg file format, but LaserOS can load still images in .jpg, .bmp, .svg, .png, and .ild). You can also run through any combination of color and distortion effects for your images, which can inject splashes of color and surreality into the relatively simple projections.” pcmag.com

“You can create your own animations with software like MaxWell Synth, Modulaser or LaserShowXpress – it's compatible with all of these – or even try uploading images and converting them to laser art ... which has frankly sucked every time we've tried it, for whatever reason. You can grab a smoke machine and be a smartass by making laser harp strings float in the air, which you can use as a MIDI controller to make music.” newatlas.com
