Default Oh Laser Tree, Oh Laser Tree...

Hey All!!

Well, you may have noticed, it's Christmas. So, what does that have to do with lasers? Well that means we've created a Laser Tree!

We made this sucker last week and produced some media to show it off. The lasers were all continuous operation lasers from Laserglow.com's Brightline Series of around 25mW to 40 mW. We also used a lot of Novalasers.com Diffraction Gratings and Crystals to help create the beam effects. The star is Laserglow.com's personal 2.4 Watt laser projector which they use for laser shows, although we were only using a fraction of its 2.4 Watt power so we could still see some tree.

Here's the video of the madness:

We're in the process of writing an Instrucable.com article about this project, and we also have some groovy pics on our Flickr page. [link]http://www.flickr.com/photos/novalasers[/link]

Happy Holidays everybody! ;D

Thanks guys! We received lots of YouTube views in the last 24 hours and the Tree made it on the front page of Instructables. We even received links from a Rush Message Board...if Geddy Lee had a Tree... ;D

Rush and Lasers are a great combo...
