Instructables have just announced the winner of their $15000 Laser Cutter contest. GRL put together a project showing how to create a "bullet time" (also known as "time slice" or the "matrix effect") rig for relatively cheap. I’ve had this idea in my "someday, when you have a couple of grand free" list for quite a while, so it’s great to see someone actually putting it together and then putting it to use.
