Hey! well since my collection is about to get extremely big because of all my builds and such, i thought i would enjoy my collection so far. and since its now 32 degrees in ohio, i decided to test a theory ive had since summer. heres the results:
here we observe my cheapie ebay pen and its surprisingly nice dot

here was the theory proven, when its cold and i breath on the beam, it creates a cool effect

Re: fun with my puny collection

Hey guys try this. Cold or not. Hold your lips closed. Build up a bunch of pressure in your mouth. Then breath out very slowly into a beam. The compressed air will make the beam visible if you built up enough pressure ... Look like a moron but it works!!

I can't say I've ever tried it... nor will I.

Consider this, I don't have a 405nm right now... :p

Re: fun with my puny collection

Works actually, I use empty water bottles instead though. keeping the lid on, crumple it up to build up pressure (just like you are going to fire the cap off), remove the cap, and push the "fog" out.

It works because when you increase the pressure and decrease the volume of a gas, it is forced to change temperature.

Re: fun with my puny collection

I'm telling you. Build pressure while holding your lips closed until your about to pop! Then exhale very slowly in front of the beam. Just do it. It works!!

I pretty sure he means mine! Haha. It's just a funny little trick.

Re: fun with my puny collection

Doesn't it get really cold at night in the desert? It doesn't have to be below freezing to be able to see your
breath.

Tmack I tried it, and after looking stupid... It didn't work. I seriously tried but it's either hard to do, or fake

Re: fun with my puny collection

!! It is hard to build up enough pressure.
