unfortunately if your talking about the Fireball Laser Projector, i looked all over the internet and the only country they will ship it directly to is the US. but I'm sure you can make a deal with someone on the forums and they will ship it to you. i would love to help with this but seeing as how i am only 16 my options on many things are severely limited, i will ask a few people if they would be willing to help you though, if you would like.

how would you go about replacing the laser installed with one of your own?
i can only help you with the Mighty Mini Laser since thats the only one i have, the laser module just sits inside a plastic housing that is screwed onto two bracket like posts inside the spyrograph, as long as you fit it onto the brackets its already aligned perfectly with the mirrors.

[quote author=yobresal link=1225664432/0#1 date=1225664812]You can get it from there website for 21 shipped. What is it powered by?
mine was 12VAC

to op: that is NOT a spirograph.... it's better! It has two galvos (vibrating mirrors as opposed to spinning mirrors) that are sent amplified sound waves from a built-in Mic.

They make for some impressive beams with music... all for less than $30 (provided you upgrade the laser of course). The pattern when projected on a wall looks very much like what's on the box. The beams created, however, look  like this

Are you sure they are "galvos" or are they oscilating mirrors? there is a big difference. You could I'm thinking produce this same effect by bouncing the laser onto a mirror on a speaker.

yea theres an indestructible on how to do the same thing for less than $10 using a $1 red laser, a wire coat hanger, a cardboard tube, a rubber glove, and of course a speaker

Galvos are oscillating mirrors. Where's the difference? If anything, it's a colloquialism in reference to oscillating speed.

They are by no means fast, (as far as galvos go) if that's what you're getting at, and yes - a similar effect could be attained by placing a mirror on two speakers. But that's a lot of work and affects the sound of the speakers (ie. sounds like shit) and is only proportional to the sound amplitude.
