From tsjiller:

Using a laser pointer, and mirrors harvested from an old disco ball, we created a rudimentary projector.

  1. The video was uploaded to YT last year, but it’s much, much older – I remember seeing this project (and the video) at least 5-6 years ago, and I had a crack (not so successfully) at making my own. Getting the mirrors mounted and aligned is hard! Although these days I could probably 3d print a mirror mount with all the angles set perfectly.

  2. @pelrun,

    Willing to make available any instructables or tips of you solution?
