    Richard Goulet had a top secret box that he built with the help of friends at an aerospace company - say around 1984. I never saw it, but that box looks like what he described. He wanted Sam to buy the rights for Laserium to use it. Sam was a lot of - things, and visionary wasn't one of them...

    ..Anyhoo, was going thru some 'Laserium Movepocalypse' photos, and came across this pup.. Thought ya'll might njoy the 'pr0n'.. Not quite sure who made these (there's a *possibility* that these may have been a prototype built-by (or, inspired-by, anyway..) Gary Stadtler, of the old-skool 'Aurora PS' fame.. Not sure, tho..) But, what I Am sure of is.. This is the 'Mother of All Lumia Turrets', easily.. Built to withstand WWIII, IV and V..

    ..Each 'layer' was designed to be both indie-rotatable (all fx-positions do rotate, together..) and indie-selectable.. And then the *second-layer* (the 'cover' there..) would provide an additional layer of lumia-sickness, ie: imagine shooting a beam thru a burst-grating, on one layer.. Then thru a lumia, on the second.. or visa-versa.

    ..Of course, the 'box', there, is not set-up (as-shown..) to actually 'pass content' - it is all sealed-up / no beam I/O, presently.. I am guessing this was a 'test-jig' for the stepper-control rig, etc, dunno.. But, could easily be machined-out to provide I/O, and plenty of room for pre-lumia pos'n prisms / lenses, etc..

    ..as the saying goes, 'They don't build stuff like they Used to', and I'm pretty-sure this is the 'poster child' for that statement.. If nothing else, maybe it can provide some 'inspiration' / idea-seeds for the budding Lumia-grasshoppers that visit, herein..

    cheers..

    Just for the record - it was Lumia produced using Duco Cement that set Ivan Dryer on the road to creating Laserium.
