That thing is a trip man! I like the 'ghetto' way you put it all together! It is mesmerizing to watch your Ghetto orb...

What is that red 'halo' around it? Is that a light from one of the motors?

There is a led soldered on the motor :D


EDIT:

Now we're gonna start asking for the PCB layout, design, materials, etc. etc.
No ..... start asking for the commercially made units for sale ..... j/k :D

Psst, the key component is...

... Magic Fairy-Dust. You gotta have magic fairy-dust.


Yeah there is a red LED on the top motor, it's for spotting errors in the slip-rings. And it looks cool. :D

Wow I'm glad it is. The last time I saw it it was only green and seemed more chaotic. It's way more awesome now!

Some might tell that some of the effects are borrowed from the RGV-driver :D

The main hazard is if both motors were to fail with the laser on, because the beam could land anywhere. When it is running the beam is spread out over a VERY large area (it is silly even to compare it with a scanner projector) so the beam is probably not much of a threat. If I one day make a more serious device I will add sensors to monitor the rpm and shutter on the laser.

you should put a 100W CO2 laser on it so you could have some 360 burning action : ) then the military would probably buy it : )

but your right with it moving that fast the beam is really harmless unless the motors do fail
