In the event anyone wondered what happened to the newish (but broken) laser tube…
It looked like a piece of art so I’m going to mount it on a stand that we can attach to the wall in the Space somewhere…

I’ll also add some led lighting (144 LED WS2811) and an ESP-01 based controller (a PartyCat if they ever become available) so it can be lit up and possibly remote controlled…

I’m working on the base but here is a video of some initial testing:

Nothing I like better than starting another project…


Someone(s) mounted the old laser tube and programmed it to "fire" on command
