Nice demo!

But I noticed that the display which shows inches and centimeters doesn't agree on the distance.. because 11.0 inches doesn't equal 29.2 centimeters :-) (11.0" == 27.94cm, or, the other way, 29.2 cm is approximately 11.5 inches)

Hey Tor-
hmmm. We'll have to go back to our elementary math books and figure out where we went awry!
:D

Nice video Mr. Andreae. I noticed that it is powered by a Li-On Power pack. Will you eventually get sides on the enclosure? The top and bottom panels looked custom-routed. Is this eventually be made into a kit?

EDIT: A handy feature would be a button or a photodiode to toggle the backlight on or off.
