Simple Laser Show with Legos
 
It can't do many patterns, but for free it isn't that bad. I built it last night.

Wow, Great job, I mean, i'm not sure you could do much more then that with Lego's. You should defiantly try to make some more, or make a different pattern.:gj:

I really like the true DIY stuff when people just take what they have laying around and use it for what it wasn't intended to be used for. :beer:

Now all you need is 405nm and 655nm pens and some dichros. ;)

That is one of the more ingenious things I have seen on here in awhile. Simplicity is what makes it so great. Until you turned on the lights I was going to accuse you of lying and using real dicros! Just awesome.

Thanks guys!

I took the flywheels off to make it respond faster. Here's a much clearer video.

It is programmed with the Lego Technic Control Center. It came out in the early 90's when I was about 10. Next I'm going to use the 3rd channel on it to contol a relay to turn the laser on and off.

Have some questions :P

What kind of motors they are?
How do you move the motor from left to right making a static beam (i don't mean shapes, i mean just a dot in just one position)? :P
And.. Can you post how do you connected the control?

Thank you :D

I second that feeling! It is so cool, yet so simple a 6 year old could build it. :p

I love it!

It must be a good thing as I find that I keep coming back to it to check it out "just one more time."
Back in my time we didn't have any of those fancy things for our Legos. (I'm not so old that they were made from stone though...just in case you were thinkin' that.)

How old is "too old" to get caught playing with them ? :p
