DIY Laser Light Show using Speakers

at 9:01 pm. Filed under DIY Hacks, Electronic Hacks


If you have a laser pointer, a few speakers, an old radio and some small mirrors you are all set to make your own DIY Laser Light Show. Alex Wiebe from Flyinglow created the project based on one he read about in the pages of Make magazine.  The first video shows the system configuration and it operating under normal lighting conditions, the second video is in the dark and shows the dramatic results. The principle is the same as some other projects that we have seen here in the past. It uses a similar principal to my Hard Drive Laser Oscilloscope project but uses the voice coils of two speakers instead of the voice coil that moves the read write head in a hard drive.
