I sort of know what it would look like but I'll try it. :)

WOW those pics are great.

I asked a long time ago about the price, but you left out the cubes and other parts for combining the lasers.  
Check the first post, I used the 803t sled optics.

Very nice! +1

Have you tried a diffraction grating? Uber cool with a white. Here are some pics I snapped back in Nov. 07. Powers are 50mW 488nm, 50mW 532nm, 200mW 655nm if I remember correctly.







Holy shi-! :eek: I have to rep you back, that is awesome. What diffraction grating(s) did you use? I don't have any, I'm thinking about getting this http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.12337. Just for the diffraction grating.

They're cheap film-gratings. $1 or less if you know where to look. Pseudo should know of a good source as he gave two away with every laser he sold.

This costed me a few pixels...


Outside with a little fog, so I used a long exposure:

Wow, great work FML. You set the standard that we can aim for. And provided the photos to show why we want a RGV.

Your using a new controller? What happened to the old one? Did you swap over to FlexMods?

I still have the old controller, or IC. I have a few different IC's now so I'm using sockets so I can easily switch between them for different effects.

This is the IC that I'm using now, still with the schematic seen in the other thread: http://www.bigclive.com/rgbcont.htm

You know that pinwheel effect seen in your "awesomeness" video was exactly what I had envisioned doing. But this RGB chip will make it easy. I was trying to think up something much more complicated. You saved me time, money, and a bunch of space on a circuit board.

Thanks for showing that IC. I ordered 3 yesterday :)
I started ordering some other things yesterday also ;) But this ones gonna take awhile.
