Step 1: Gather Materials
-2 mirrors, one has to be at least 2" by 2"
-2 electric motors(scavenged from toy fans)
-a AA battery
-plenty of small wire
-some plastic containors to mount the motors on, anything about an inch high and sturdy enought to mount the motors on will work.
- DIY Laser Mount
-a base about 5" by 5", I used a plastic lid, you can use cardboard or anything else thats handy.
- a potentiometer to control the speed of the motor, any salvaged volume control should work
-plenty of wire so we have some slack to work with
Step 2: Setting up the Electric
Before anyone rant... I realize that anyone with any knowledge about basic electronics knows that electricity always takes the path of least resistance so wiring in a parallel isn't the best choice if I want to use a potentiometer. I wanted to only have to use one battery so I did. The potentiometer, if you're careful with it will change the speed of the one motor without stopping completely. If you want to wire in a series, it doesn't take too much knowledge to do that, so you can if you like.
Sorry for all the words.
