    Default Just a bit of fun - laser webcam

    I have have a webcam setup streaming to the net that has been watching the bats that I have living in my roof - As there has been so little action due to weather tonight I decided to try converting it to a laser cam.
    take a look. it obviously wont be on all the time but should be for an hour or so tonight and probably tomorrow.

    Cool!

    I assume you've just got the projector cycling through a bunch of patterns then? It looked like it was changing patterns pretty quick. (Maybe just displaying a rapid beam show over and over? Can't really tell with the slower frame rate.)

    Either way though, I like it!

    yep adam its just running Mamba shows over - and ive been changing them every few runs through - some of my own some are the stock shows. I know you cant get the FULL effect from the low refresh rate - but as I said its just a bit of fun

    Steve-o didnt you see tha bat signal

    Full effect - Bah! It's still cool in my book! I like it!

    You got this set up in your living room?

    Cool idea... I need to see if I can figure a way to get my projector set up in my computer room to surf the net while watching lasers. (Of course, then I probably wouldn't be reading what's on the screen, but rather just watching the lasers.) Hmmm. Maybe it would be better to set it up by the treadmill so I can watch lasers while I get some excersize. (I'll bet my doc would approve of the idea!)
