solder using a magnifying glass and sunlight
« on: November 08, 2008, 11:57:44 PM »
Its been a long time since I've used a magnifying glass to fry ants . . . never thought the skill had a robotics use. The site says it takes about 30 seconds, so definitely not efficient . . . but cheaper than a soldering iron.

Now if a company made a laser soldering station, and not expensive like those $3k infrared types, that'd be great ;D

If the professor would've known that trick, he could've built a transmitter and got them off of that island. :)
