Introduction: Personal Wicked Laser Light Show
Step 1: Get All the Parts Needed
Any laser(s) you want
1 DC motor with wires - preferably with a some sort of gear attached.
1 Cardboard Box.
1 samll piece of plastic - a gatorade cap will work.
1 battery, 3.7 volts worked perfect.
CA glue or any strong superglue.
Step 2: Melt Your CD
Take the cd and melt it over your stove, BE VERY CAREFUL! I found that you can easily hold the cd with a fork, the goal is to make the cd as wavy as possible. Do not hold the cd to close to the flame or it will burn and the reflective side will begin to bubble and peel.
Step 3: Prepair the Box
Cut one side of the box off and mark an X with a marker where the motor will be. Cut the X with scissors and push the motor up through the box from the bottom, it should fit snug.
Step 4: Glue the Piece of Plastic and the CD to the Motor
Glue the piece of plastic your going to use to the top of the motor. Make sure it is centered. Once that has dried, glue the
cd to the piece of plastic. Since the cd is now wavy it may be tricky to glue, this is why strong glue is important.
Step 5: Time to Start the Show!
CAUTION: I suggest you use eye protection until you are sure where the beams will go. Depending on the shape of the cd and speed of the motor the effect will vary. Posted by Laser Community member: FathomBoy91
