So guy built a custom long range optical morse code telegraph for some dude on a RaspberryPi, as the usual smartphone app ones ultimately didn't provide the needed range. Guy does custom hardware projects as well?

Fully Integrated Hybrid Silicon Two Dimensional Beam Scanner | Bowers
The underlying tech behind Strobe Inc.'s (now GM/Cruise) fancy pants chip LIDAR. Uses optical phased array for one dimensional scanning, and frequency variation through a prism lens to achieve scanning in the other dimension, rather than a full 2D optical phased array (so easier to make?)
