Compact laser light show from computer salvage

From the MAKE: Flickr pool

Phozon posts pics of the “Lunchtime LASER project”, a follow-up to one of his previous works. The pocket-sized light show is put in motion by what appears to be two CPU fans and power comes courtesy of a spare USB port. Lunchtime LASER = awesome.

    Glad to see someone else saw the flat surface of the CPU fan as a great place to glue a mirror! Nice use of heat sinks as a way to mount this thing.

    This is the most clever design of this type of laser show, ever. Very nicely done.
