DIY: Portable laser light show

lightshowmtr2So here’s another little DIY project. This one involves making your own little laser light show. Now obviously it’s not going to make shapes in time with Dark Side of the Moon, but it still looks really cool. I might even have to do this one myself, if I knew how to solder. It’s definitely worth your time to take a look at this thing if you have any interest at all in DIY projects involving lasers and sharks.

It’s a relatively simple mod. Chop the end off of a laser pointer with a dremel, put together a controller and a 1 RPM motor, and glue a quarter to the shaft of the motor. Shine the laser on the quarter and you have your own portable light show. Pretty impressive stuff. For complete instructions visit the guy’s website.
