Space Invaders with Real Lasers is Dangerous, but I’d give this a shot.

“I was inspired to make a physical version of the classic game, space invaders. It’s got aliens, lasers and general destruction so what’s not to love, especially if you could replicate most of that functionality in the real world. So I present to you my take on that game. A modified laser cutter provides 90% of the hardware required and the game is controlled by the keys on a laptop. The player is given an overhead view from a webcam mounted on the machine. The game played well and resulted in flamey death for the space invaders and not the laser cutter, I consider that to be a win condition.”
