Got boried so got all my colors and after some
struggle and good old electrial/duck tape.
I managed to align them up to hit my 2" lumia wheel...:gun:
its a 1.3w of 445nm, 50mw of 473nm, 556mw of 405nm, 150mw 532nm
Some pictures and a short Video (40 secs) boss man was bout to come in the trailer lol. He already thinks Im a odd one...
He came in my office the other day when I had my lasers/tools out... all wide eyed he just said " just dont set the rig on fire...please... ".. :whistle:

Pretty good result considering the setup :D

Perhaps it would be nice to add in 200 mW-ish of red too, just to make it complete?

Ha! Well it's not always about how the effect is made so much as what the effect looks like. Regarding 6" wheels, Displaser on PL (not sure if he's here as well or not) makes some of the best glass lumia wheels around.

You really need to get some 660nm in there too. The blood red is awesome in person. Your camera picks up 405 about as badly as mine does as well it seems. heh.

Do you know what kind of glass/material he uses? I'm fairly good at cutting circles (and other shapes) out of glass. :D

BTW that is a really cool looking custom focus adapter you have there on one of them lasers :D

If your looking for a 6" wheel go over to PL and contact swamidog he makes some good ones ;)

They are counter rotating and move at .5 rpm or less the projection is awesome
and for me a lot of the time it made me feel like I was under water, like in a pool.
simply amazing :D

That video is amazing FP

OP: the effect is great. Are you planning to mount it permanently in a box?

Uhhhhh, far out man.
Good thing I didn't start my day watching that. Far better to end it.
Going to look up that music and more like it now too. (Or at least while at work tomorrow.)

That's awesome.
Thanks for posting it.

Ya thats just plain badass,
Are you doing anything as it runs? like adjusting brightness or
speed of motors? or is all that completly random.
Ive seen that type of wheel you have, that has segmented sections on it.
im guessing that helps with the randomness....
Heres mine.
Ignore the red marks on it.. My futile attempt to change the beam color...
