Laser lighting Fireworks


New Member
The world of LASERs is going through a bit of a revolution at the moment with new cheap source of 1000mW blue lasers being found ( Casio hybrid laser/led office projector ) , these diodes are normally $2500 EACH , but the casio contains 24of them and you can buy the whole unit for $800

So hobbyists and enthusiasts have been tearing these units apart to install the diodes into laser projecotrs and laser pointers

This is all great news for hobbyist an enthusiasts but theres a bit of down side in that one laser comapny wicked lasers is marketing this as a sexy laser pointer product at a price available to most teenagers $200 and most agree this is too powerful a unit to be in the hands of mass consumers. This unit is called the ARCTIC and theres talk of orders now reaching 10,000 units , theres a competition to win one HERE

Great colour , amazing power ... just a bit too dangerous for general use methinks :huh:
