Rog, you can't really think that we are going to be able to build one of those...

Are you going to include links to the exact box and components? I can't believe you got all of that to fit inside that box! Now you have a couple of motors with mirrors on a different power supply?? Let alone three different lasers and a sled.

That's incredible!

Thats simply amazing Rog! :D Its unbelievably compact inside that tiny little box and the fact that you got a spiro in there is even more amazing. Not only were you one of the first people to make a hand held white laser pointer but you even topped that one too!

BTW, I'm doing your mod right now (the one with the ps3 sled).

On the tutorial it gives details of the box sizes, they (I used 2 to make this) came from ebay and were not marked with a manufacturers name or number. I have also specified the motors the rest is down to what you can find as I tend to work from a bottomless scrap box::)

thanks to the rest of you for the comments, and as I still cannot see any of the pictures that are posted on the thread I will brighten it up with a new one....

Regards rog8811

EditI could not bear to see this thread with all the pictures missing so I have edited all the jpg's into the posts, I appologise if this means that others see 2 copies of the pictures....

Rog, when you finish the tutorial (using the PHR sled), will you post it here in this thread?

I am hosting the tutorial on Hacknmod for various reasons. I have had to edit it down quite a bit to get it accepted so what I will probably do is to open a new thread in tutorials and mods to cover the inevitable questions members will want to ask. I am not happy that in its current form there is enough depth of information for a lot of people.

All I can say is... WOW!

...And a very nice tutorial. Just like I figured, it's going to be next to impossible to make everything fit like you did Rog!

Doesn't surprise me. Dude, I'd let you do heart surgery on me. And for that compliment, I will be happy to accept your offer to build me one of these! :D (Just wishful thinking, but if you do, I know it will be expensive)

The optics part should end up exactly the same as mine and the batteries are a known size...so you know you can get that part done and it will fit, I must admit that the spiro was not easy but I truly believe that anyone with a bit of nouce (and you have that in spades Jay) could do this, None of the motor mount part was done with machinary, all hand cut, bent and soldered.
I would love to see other versions ot this appear on the forum GO FOR IT!

My version of the "White" pointer

• Red laser: 650nm, 350mw, long open-can diode
• Blu Ray: 405nm, 100mw, PHR803T
• Green laser: 532nm, 50mw, IR filtered
Individual laser on-off switches allow you to control 7 different laser colors: Red, UV, Green, Magenta, Aqua, Yellow, and White.
Dimensions:
(L) 5in x (W) 2in x (H) 1.5in

This was the prototype. Next one will be even smaller and include input for TTL modulation, also testing alternate battery types. I figured AA's are very common and cheap but I want to know what you'all think!
