Laser and Light Show
What is needed for a good laser show
Great resource about laser shows: http://www.laserfx.com
lots of good links: http://www.linux-laser.org/links.php?lang=de
Laser controller software - player
Probably the best system out there is the Pangolin http://www.pangolin.com/LD2000/feature_overview.htm
Free player: http://sourceforge.net/projects/lfiplayer3d limited features, limited documentation… but it is free
That will generate ILDA compatible signal
To control the laser position and generate image Here is one from eBay: This is a green 100mW laser from nfi.exports.direct on ebay for $590+ $69 shipping from China. It works quite nice, even without the ILDA controller it is possible to perform nice show with the DMX control only.
The bigger the better, and way more expensive..
The laser regulations
