Lilikoi Laser

Lilikoi-Laser

Lilikoi Laser @ Maui Makers.

Maker Ryan K showed up at our Thurs Aug 15 2012 meeting with what is one of the coolest maker projects I’ve seen in a while…
A Laser powered by Lilikoi fruit!

Lilikoi (aka Passion Fruit, Passiflora Edulis) is a vine that grows all over our wet Maui regions. It can produce LOTS of fruit – which can make a mess for owners, and a bonanza for bugs. Ryan was cleaning up a whole bunch of them at his home and tasting one, realized it was pretty acidic. Being a curious Maker, he thought “Hmmm I wonder if you could make a power source with this?”
