laser cutting bioplastics

This video is awesome. You can make your own bioplastic. Starch, glycerine, vinegar and water. 7 parts water, 1 vinegar, .5 glycerine and 1.5 parts starch. You heat the mixture up while stirring. You can then flatten it and it will turn into a sheet of bioplastic. You can even add your own colors to it. The sheet can then be laser cut. You can make plastic and then laser cut it. Wow? I’ve been watching this video for 20 minutes now over and over again. Guess what I’ll be doing this weekend? More than a little fascinated. Thank you Lasern!
