    I just realized that this looks exactly like the "Laser Dock" from Wicked Lasers...

    Did they license anything from you? Or did they just copy it and not tell you?

    Close, but no cigar as they used to say.

    Here are the two side by side:

    No, there is no engineering overlap between them as far as I know. As dkumpula showed they don't look quite the same. I definitely don't think they copied anything, in fact if I remember correctly they released theirs slightly earlier than me, so if anyone is a copy cat, it would be me . Extruded aluminium cases like that are pretty common nowadays, the one used in the Helios is an off-the-shelf product (except the custom engraving and cutouts of course).

    Hey Grix,
    I appreciate Iím a bit late to the party but wanted to say a huge thanks for sharing your work with the community. There seems to be a gap in the market for a cost effective DAC, especially one benefiting from the agility of open source code!

    Iím planning to buy one for an ILDA port equipped projector and thinking of using it to create a wirelessly controlled solution:

    by plugging the Helios into the USB of a wireless NUC micro-pc like the Gigabyte Brix, running lasershowgen and mounted on the projector, Iím hopeful I should be able to RDP into the Micro-pc wirelessly to control the software
