Glowforge Mascot ideas for the hopper

Continuing the discussion from QOTD from Glowforge: First week with your Glowforge-- What does it look like?:

Hey thanks, really appreciate that. Haven’t really updated it with any of my design and illustration, but perhaps I should! Cheers :slight_smile:
[/quote]@kylekesterson’s work makes me realize that while we are working on that official tag line contest. Perhaps we also need to submit some suggestions to the Glowforge team for an official mascot. Linux has Tux. Github has Octocat. BSD has Daemon. MS Word has Clippy. I have seen the work of some really creative artists on this forum. Imagine the marketing potential. Imagine the ridicule we could endure. Surely some laser cat thing would be good. But from other discussions it might have to be a bobcat. Laser Bobcat, Laser lynx. What do you all think?

Cyclops (of X-Men fame) comes to mind.

Apparently an irritated Sting Ray is more appropriate this week.

Can Glowforge get the rights for Glo Worms?

If you’re looking for a suitable superhero, I would suggest The Ray.

Yeah, a ray. I like it. The coloring of the Glowforge basically matches manta rays already.
