How to Make a Simple Green Laser Projector by Zedomax.com
For this DIY you will need one of this green lasers--high powered green lasers and diffractive glass, which when you shine green laser to it, you will see it diffracts into multiple race and you will need epoxy. Two types, one is Epoxy Putty and one is Plastic Fusion Epoxy and you will need a three volt motor from Radio Shack and you will need bunch of pipes to make your laser projector stand.
Step 1 Make the Laser Stand with pipes
Test out the angles
Step 2 Drill a hole in the center of the diffractive glass and epoxy it onto the motor
Attach the motor to the 90 angle pipe connector using more epoxy
Okay, now I got the head ready with the three volt motor and I have solder two wires on to the each end. I simply have to connect to the battery or DC adapter and also I have soldered on the refractive glass. I have actually broke, the glass so I have to epoxy everything but it works fine because I use the very good epoxy. It is very hard and it is good. Now I get the wires goes through all this parts and make it come out here so I will do that right now so I am going to do is take everything apart starting from the start.
Where did it go? All we need is a laser tool here and we connect the adapter and this should stand for a little party light so we will be back. So this is my home made laser projector is my version one made out of pipes and basic it is a DC motor hooked up to a refractive lens and I am going to do is put a deep--it does not have to be this size I can put any size battery. It is not 1.5 volts. Later, I might have my controller and now I get the motor running so you hear the sound of the motor running. Now the great thing about this is that it allows you to use a green laser as a personal laser and then when you want to use it as a projector you simply push it in here and this is a line it roller and there you go. Now some at stop mode, you want to get this nice star of lights, let me turn the lights off so you can see a little better. Now you see the star it lights, right. Now you just have the motor and you get a nice, nice animation. Now when you get two black holes basically so next version we will have a micro controller so it can control the speed according to music. Well, hopefully I have done that before so it is not bad for 20 minutes of my time and some pipes and a DC motor and a battery and you can take this anywhere with you. You can put on a building and it is just a projection light so well I guess you can. You can see, you can kind to go dance in here.
I guess these three lasers are not too bad because this is all refracted of all this lights you know so I am trying to make the party lights and then later on I can just simply take it out and just play with it. I mean I could make a full pledge enervative, you know party light. But you know they are not--I would not be able to take it with me so that is my homemade green laser projector.
