I thought we were going with a manta ray with a laser on its head: Glowforge Mascot Thread

Was that the consensus? I can’t keep up anymore, lol…

As original poster of the mascot thread, I truly thought the ray would get the prize, but then we got some funny pics of @dan and finally realized that he is our mascot, like it or not.

Soooo, he should make a @dan, riding a shark, both with frikken lasers on their heads?

:smile:

To answer the earlier question about if this glowforge came directly from the factory line, no - we are making sure every laser is well tested before we send it out.

Yeaaaaah… I just clicked on that video twenty times.

(But I’m also really freaking excited that there’s a beta tester in the forums now! Congrats @jkopel!!)

Unfortunately Josh is contractually obligated not to share. I know, I know - my kindergarten teacher would be upset.

Is that what happens when you get a glowforge?! no wonder hes been so quiet

When I look at the Glowforge map, it looks like there are four GF’s in Norway, but I do not know for sure if it is correct.
Otherwise, you are of course welcome to Bergen if you were to visit Norway, even though the fish market in Bergen is not as impressive as it once was. :slight_smile:

Ha—Oh yes, I’m well aware… I also live in Northern Indiana, so there’s no way I’m ever possibly going to be bringing any of you guys dinner or coffee… (though for you, Dan? I’d make an exception… unfortunately you’d just have to either be very, very patient or someone would have to gift me the plane ticket).

@jkopel, I can’t wait to see what you post, I know that when I get my OWN GF one of the things I plan on doing first is a series of “test prints” that will show the different speed and such for the laser. I would also love to see the different materials you try out. :smiley: I know you are limited on what you CAN post, however we are ALL very excited for any little thing that’s posted! Congrats on BETA. :smiley:
