SATURDAY PHOTO HUNT


Info Page - Join
This week's theme - TECHNOLOGY

I kinda figured that I'm gonna see a lot of Tivo, Playstations, remotes, video games, computer technology this weekend for the hunt, so I wracked my brain to find something out of the 'ordinary' in technology.....


[Laser Level]

The Laser Level Instrument generates an optical pulse. This pulse is reflected off an object or liquid and returns to the system receiver. A high-speed counter measures the time of flight from the start pulse to the return pulse. This time is used to determine the distance from the sensor to the material.


Laser Level Sensors are mostly used for measuring levels of bulk solids and opaque liquids. 80% of these units are used for dry solids. They employ Class I lasers, which are safe for the human eye(but I still wouldn't eyeball the laser beam myself). As most devices use laser of wavelength 1 micron, as opposed to radar's wavelength of 10,000+ microns, it reportedly has virtually no beam divergence, which means no false echoes, and easily measures surfaces at an angle. The narrow laser beam can pass through screens. It can traverse distances of up to 120 meters (for us Americans that's over 300 feet).

And hubby has an electronic stud finder also---but he won't allow me to go searching for the studs I have in mind!!!! And since this is a PG rated blog....I best leave the photo off here. *wink*

Technology at it's finest for us 'do it your-selfers'!!!

    I also posted a technological device that is out of the ordinary--in fact, it wasn't even invented this century (or the last for that matter.)

    Great take on the theme! Out side the box is good!
    Thanks for visiting my tangled technology. Happy Saturday!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh, yes, that's one tech thing that's very useful!

    Not the stud one for me.... *lol*

    Reminds me of that I had another laser light once, which I used to scare away some birds, mostly Magpies from my birdfeeder since they ate it all in seconds otherwise.

    They reacted very fast at the light and even in large distance, probably because they thought it was the hunter with a laser sight in his rifle!

  24. Congrats on being Site of the Day.
    These laser things are really cool. Have one for our cats...they love chasing the light.
    Mine's up.

  34. It's funny but I've always wanted one of these things, too. I wanted it so that I could do my stuff around the house. The thing is I don't do stuff around the house (except cleaning!) But I still want one!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Nicely done. Way to think outside the box.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  37. One of those never knew you needed it but can't live without it now kind of tools. :) Good post.

    Your site is a 'hoot', BTW. Out of pure coincidence DH and DD were playing ride 'em cowgirl when your music started playing. They thought I found it just for them!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Too cool! I want one, but probably wouldn't use it!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Good idea! And it surely replaced the pencil and ruler didnt' it! ; )Thanks for visiting my site.

  42. Hello site of the day!! We have a laser that we tease the kitties with. No, we don't shine it in their eyes! They'll chase the light on the floor for hours!

    Thanks for stopping by mine :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. Cool choice for this week! Things have never been more level on my walls since I got one :) Happy Hunting!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Well, this is weird. I left a comment earlier today and it seems to have disappeared.

    I love your take on technology. We have one of those and it is SO handy.

    ReplyDelete

  50. Hi Hoot!
    Thanks for stopping by my blog to check out my "technology" post. I learned LOTS about laser levels from your description. Mom got one of these for Christmas, but she's just been using it as a laserbeam toy for us since the batteries wore out in our laser pointer.

  51. So you've really done your homework on that thingie :D

    My Mr Right is obsessed with all kinds of tools and stuff... And we have few tons of them! (Yeah, he's trying to make a living out of them, by renovating people's houses) But I don't think he has the laser thing yet? Hmm... He's birthday is coming soon...

    Thanks for stopping by!

  52. Great idea for the theme and great shot

    ReplyDelete
  53. Those things are great! So are stud finders.

    My mom moved into a new home recently and needed a stud finder so she could hang her pictures. Well.. we got to laughing about what *other* things a stud finder could be used for. She's a funny lady at the age of 72 and still a bit feisty :)

    Thanks for dropping by!

    ReplyDelete
  54. My aunt certainly could have used that! Now she has a stained carpet. Thanks for the wishes and stopping by..

    I'm amazed at your numbers! ;-)

    ReplyDelete

  57. Very interesting and informative. Thanks for stopping by mine.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Great technology photo with a lot of information, too! I'd love to have a laser level. Don't need a stud finder - I've already found mine!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Aren't you the clever one!!!

    Now as far as the stud finder goes, it makes me think, I haven't seen any vibrators yet! LMAO

    I have more to say on that subject but if it really is a kid tested blog I'd better refrain!!

    Congrats on being featured.
