High tech smoke signals Answered

Daniel Schulze is an industrial design student in Berlin who is working on a sweet smoke machine. The plan is to have a 7x7 grid of holes that shoot little clouds of smoke into the air. The smoke comes from a fog machine and is shot up in the air with drivers. Check out the video below to see a test of one row. The full setup will be shown next week at DMY Berlin.

Dude, if i did this id add lasers to make the smoke puffs much more visible... Just like one high powered diode and a bunch of mirrors should do the trick.

They could put different colored LED's under each of the smoke cannons; though the lasers would make a neat effect...

Any bright light would illuminate them, but the reflected glow off the "leaked" smoke might spoil the view.
