Default Re: Mercury Light show

so, back on topic now....

I bet the glass module (hell use the spring too) from an older style thermostat (for home heating / AC) would be cool.

It's a sealed glass vial mounted on a spring, filled with mercury.

easy to find, cheap and already sealed.

Just hook up a coil, attach a magnetic bar and presto!

Okay, so the switch did contain too little hg to have any interesting effect, so i just took a video of the laser reflecting off the jar. The beam is a little bit distorted because of the thick glass.

This was done on the projector for one of the first laser shows, LOVELIGHT after one of the scan heads, the beam reflected into a mercury pool, that was mounted on a galvo shaker.
