Introduction: Laserized Music

Yes the I made up the word "Laserized" but once you see this Instructable you'll be glad to adopt it. I am aware that there is similar Instructables out there but I thought that this is a far less complex version because it is a simple and nearly costless way to make a spectacular effect with your speakers and a laser(s).

Step 1: Get All the Parts Needed

Any Laser(s) you want
1 Speaker with a port (Hole in the back)
1 Small cup (I used a coffee sample cup- Starbucks has them)
1 Sharp blade (I used an Xacto knife)
1 Rubber Band
1 Scissor
1 Tape
1 Latex glove
1 CD

Step 2: Prepare the CD

Cut the CD to a small square that will fit within the bottom of the cup.

Step 3: Prepare the Cup

Cut the bottom out of the cup.
Place the palm of the Latex glove over the opening you just cut out and secure with the Rubber band.
Pull the Latex glove so that there are no wrinkles and the surface is smooth
Tape the piece of CD to the Latex glove in the center.

Step 4: Tape the Cup the The Speaker

Tape the cup you just prepared over the hole(port) on the back of the speaker.

Step 5: Lazertize Me Capt'N

Nothing else left to do other than put on your favorite music and "Lasertize" your friends! Note: I am using 2 lasers in the video, my 55mw extreme and 5mw core.

    nice ! it works very well for me. How about mirror + diffraction gratings ? A lot more effects !! ( I still don't own Diffraction gratings)

    If you can find a party store that sells Chaunnika stuff, sometimes you can find diffraction glasses that will project star-of-david. :D

    here is my end product. I built this like 1 hour prior to this video so I wasn't to sure what to play. I ended up playing Bob Marley's "Three Little Birdies" because its one of the few songs I have that have a true BASE (I hate rap) sorry about yank'n your chain about playing another song. I wasn't ready to find "Bus Stop" by the Hollies (my favorite song) so I didn't end up showing that song. also in the video the laser itself doesn't look that bright, especially when the laser get very broad loop like, but it is a lot better in real life. (well you know what I mean) hope you enjoy the video as much as I enjoyed building it!!! thanks!!

    how do you get it so big? I tried it and got results but they are about the size of a dime. any help?

    I would just stick the glove directly on the port the get some really crazy shows I'll have to try this

    ever consider just taping the mirror to the cone of the speaker? i did this in high school, late 80's, used the schools lab He-Ne laser, and used a synthesizer to make different tones. a sine wave makes a perfect circle. and as the waves get more complex, the pattern grows in complexity too.
