    Thanks a million for the detailed suggestions. It's been a while since I've debugged anything electronic but your ideas brought me right back to those old tricks. Funnily enough, when I turned the laser on this time there was zero vertical jitter. That's actually bad news, since an intermittent...

    Yes, I have got one of these (sent to me as a sample for comment/testing purposes). Although I've spoken with several folks about it and demo'd it a couple times, I have been meaning to post a proper review so allow me to do that now. Let me start by saying I am impressed for the most part. ...

    I recently confirmed with them that the laserdock libraries are indeed compatible with the cube as well.

    The jitter you see in the video looks like signal interference on the Y axis. Could be a bad ground, bad cable, or a loose connection. Could also be bad position feedback coming back into the amp from the scanners. Couple things you can try... First: Swap one end of the cables that go...

    buffo replied to a thread LaserCube in Lasers, All Kinds.
    Kumpula had a lasercube on display in the cafeteria at SELEM this year. Cool little unit, although the color balance is massively blue-heavy. Still, when you turn the blue down to get a reasonable white you still have a nice 300-ish mw projector, and it's battery-powered, which is pretty unique. ...

    Do you know when it supposedly happened? The photo you posted looks old; if this was something that happened long ago it may not have been deemed newsworthy - especially if it was quickly shut down. Then too, even if it did make the papers, if it happened before the explosion of the world...

    It seems to be basically a LaserDock that is small and battery patterned. Based on that I assume it is compatible with my software (Spaghetti) but it isn't listed on their webpage.

    The Venus seems to have slightly better scanning and divergence. Just read the specs. Honestly thatís not much of a projector. You should be able to build it yourself for about half sans scanners. The scanners they offer a fine for beam shows but if you want graphics spend a bit more and go...

    Presumably its because the Starburst comes with the grating effects wheel. However you have to be sure, its an option, and they don't always have stock (as I found out when enquiring about the Starburst 5.5 last year) Also, the Starburst appears to have better beam specs (1mrad vs 1.4mrad)

    It has been a long time since I posted anything about the software I wrote called Spaghetti Laser Show. A couple things I would like to mention are: 1) I added IDN support recently with the help of Dirk. It seems to work pretty well. 2) I finally updated the demo version from the ancient C#...

Got it back the other day and after firing it up I see 2 problems. I'm wondering if I have a good chance of fixing either of them on...
