Dan created the design for this laser-etched Powerbook “using Inkscape, an open-source vector graphics program that does an amazing job converting images into duotone graphics”. One more pic after the jump.

Etching of Magritte’s “The Son of Man” onto a 15″ PowerBook using Squid Lab’s Epilog laser. The graphic was made using the miracle of Inkscape (specifically, the bitmap-to-path function that uses the eerily-accurate potrace program)
