Easy Laser Light Show

Picture of Easy Laser Light Show
Description:
Here is a very cool laser light show. What makes it cooler is that it can be made with items around the home! This one is quite simple and does not take much time at all.

Warning:
Be very careful during the building of and using of this device, it is quite easy for a mistake to happen and the laser to shine in you eye. I highly suggest wearing laser safety goggles during the entire process.
