    I'm somewhat working on an idea on the subject. I havn't come to far but I hope I'll make some progress. As my mother works with garden and landscape design I have been looking at some sort of wateringsystem as a base.

    There are three ways to go I think. A dripping solution, spray or mist. I think a spray would give a good screen even if a "dripping" solution would give a more flat surface to project on (http://www.laserundlicht.de/Johannes/index.htm).

    I think I'll try to use Gardena watering system as a base for testing. These nozzles at an even distance. http://www.gardena.com/servlet/Produ...egory_rn=12565
    You know, I have one simple request. And that is to have sharks with frickin' laser beams attached to their heads!

    Default DIY waterscreen

    Sorry to reply without the full info but theres a compnay in Germany i think that sells them for 500 Euros , it was last summer when i found it so dont remember toooo much except to say it seemed like a good price ,sure it was a 5 metre one , i was thinking of building one to play with at the time ( another job i never got round to ! ) and concluded the time invested in trying to get something to work would be painful and errr wet !and made a mental note to buy one when funds availble !!!!! GUESS WHAT ! i aint bought one ... we have all been there eh !! though Dtpros were just toooo goood to resist !

    If no one chimes in due course with th supplier i will try and find it again for you if you too feel it was value for money .

    Why not make a fog-screen instead of water ?
    Less mess

    And you can have it indoor.

    Here is another thread discussing water screens over at makezine: http://forums.makezine.com/comments....cussionID=2638
