Future development for Lasercam & LightBurn

In the coming future, we are working with the LightBurn team to develop a wireless video. At the current LightBurn camera calibration solution, all the cameras connect to LightBurn (PC/Laptop) by a USB cable and depend on the cable length on distance. In the future, the Lasercam will also support adding wirelessly for video. That means the LightBurn (PC/Laptop) and the laser engraver don't need any more cable, even for the camera calibration and image tracking.
