Description Digital indicator for full laser filters
Author(s)  Heiko, Severin

Problem

We don't clean our laser filters enough.

Solution

An indicator when we should clean our filters.

  • We have the run time of the laser
  • Every n hours we should clean the filter
  • We need an indicator

Plan

A laser cut canary that sits next to the laser, and falls over when it's time to clean the filter. We could also give it two-colored eyes that go from green to red over time.
