Make Your Own Personal Laser Designs with Cubiio

-

We all love to put logos or tags to our favorite personal belongings; from our planners, mugs, books and anything that we use every day. We all enjoy buying name stickers or keychain tags that dangle around. But sadly they do not last that long because they tend to be lost and erased from being attached to our favorite personal stuff. Muherz, a company from Taiwan developed Cubiio, a portable laser that we could bring along with us whenever we go.
