Place a fog machine above the lasers
well, the fog machine sounds like an idea that would work. But i think it is very unpractical.
QuoteAre we talking about playing in private or giving a performance? I do play in a couple different groups/bands. in one we play classical music and in the other we play a little bit like klezmer/gypsy/fun music. I can imagine that if a project like this would turn out well, i would maybe use it for our klezmer band, but i would mainly use it at home and to have some fun in our jam sessions.So, let me ask you guys a question:What would be the safest usable (hmmm, cheap!) laser for this kind of project?I don't know anything about lasers. i have started reading about it, but i am having trouble "deciding" anything on my own. i'm kind of afraid actually... I think a laser from Classes 1 and even maybe 2 would be ok. Class 2 goes up to 1mW. I'm not so worried with the color...Would it be better to get a laser diode and build a circuit for it, or could i actually buy some laser pointer and use those parts (i have seen some laserpointer a lot cheaper than laser diodes...)Is this a project for a beginner like me? Or should i stick with something safer for a couple more projects? I can always try to build an EWI or something...

thanks guys.well, the fog machine sounds like an idea that would work. But i think it is very unpractical.Maybe it is better stop dreaming about seeing those "strings" and thinking about something that will actually work well! What about "non-visible-string-harps", what would be a good idea?What kind of sensors would be good?I am afraid that those light sensors will work differently for instance while playing in a park outside on a sunny day and playing inside in a dark concert room.Any ideas?
