You missed my point. Technology is not the reason WebP is probably going nowhere.
Apple, Microsoft and Firefox for whatever reason (politics/principle) either won't support defacto standards or have to be dragged kicking and screaming into doing so (see SPDY). And without those three you are never going to get above 45%.
Happened with me too,few days back I got a notification about some payment into my account by Google Admob and an email about refund, I thought it must be some unused fund but yesterday I got another notification about google taking it back! I was puzzled that is it my bank account or google's, they seem to be doing whatever they want with it.
My account was disabled one year ago. No warning, no reason. Then I contacted the customer service of Admob, after few days, they told me their system detected that my account has some issues. I lost hundreds dollar just because the arithmetic said I was criminal. And someothers told me, their system made mistakes sometimes. If you met, it's your own badluck. :(
If you want to make a business out of it, you can sell license but if you worked on it only as a hobby project, you can open source it, totally depends upon how you personally want to go ahead with it.
It's actually laser cut Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF). There are several types, and only some are good for laser cutting. The good types include various fiberboards of a tan color, and if you scratch the edge with your fingernail, you should be able to loosen (and observe) individual fibers. I have purchased pre-cut sheets of this material at Home Depot in the US (midwestern and western US). They also sell a type which has a flat wood pattern printed on one side, intended as "wall board". It is cheap - 12-18USD for a 4x8' sheet.
The type that is used in clipboard backers is NOT good for laser cutting. Although it is also called MDF, it is dark brown, sometimes semi-gloss on the surface, heavier, and more structural. Unfortunately, the glue used to bond and seal it soaks up laser cutting energy and makes it very difficult to cut without significant char.
If you're looking for small amounts of laserable material for testing, laserbits is not a bad source (http://www.laserbits.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=82_...). However, in general I would recommend finding it locally at a lumberyard or home improvement shop as the quantity and pricing are better, and they will typically also cut it for you for a low price. Another source for this kind of material (at least in the US) are university bookstores, who havea (expensive) supplies for architecture majors.
...and BTW, is anyone going to point out the obvious hazards of DIY x-ray dosing? Like, okay, sure, you can perform CT scans on inanimate objects in the privacy of your own home, without subjecting living creatures to x-rays, but still... open source x-ray machines?
