Hi everybody
Happy to find this forum.

I'm an artist and I want to make a big mirror room that people can walk in and use laser pointers to creat a hallucinating environment.
Just like the experiment of @Frozenferrari (see attached photo) but in a massive scale.

My question is:
Would it be safe for people to experience that under any possible precaution? (Laser quality and specifications, protection goggles)

Please advise

There is a pretty damn good reason that he is not in the room taking a pic and instead has set up a gopro. To answer your question no it will not be safe at all, Even if you invest in quality 5mw modules and fog machine it will be too easy for people to stare into it by mistake and get flashblinded for half an hour.

Exactly what was said ^^^

No, there is o way you could ever make such a thing safe.

Sounds also like you do not undstand the meaning of the term "hallucination" . Nothing you are imagining to do with lasers causing a "hallucinating environment" whatever that twisted daydream of nonsense/BS is supposed to mean.
By definition s Hallucinating envoirment" can only be inside you head/skull where any/all hallucinations are created/takeplace, maybe you are meaning spatially disorienting or something like that--who knows but whatever it is you are meaning forget lasers.

Make a mini-scale mirror room, put a cheap RGB laser unit in its base (so that it could shoot out and make cool patterns within the mirror cube, surrounded it in laser-proof glass with a hi-def 3-degrees-of-freedom camera in the center, and then hand out a VR headset with headtracking to viewers so that they can move their head and simultaneously experience different viewing angles as seen by the camera inside the room.

That would be 100% safe (unless the person has epilepsy or something)

You forgot some things it seems like:
That setup would cost a few thousand if done properly
And most inporntantly: Ya know that camera sensors can be destroyed by laser light right?
