Description

Laser Gaming is video gaming but with frickin’ lasers. We have Laser Pong, played with our custom controller and projected onto whatever we have to hand: the side of a pub, the wall of an expo hall, whatever’s available. If we can get away with it we will also use the smoke machine to bring out the laser beams for a truly awesome display.

Under The Bonnet

The laser is a Reke 500 RGB. This is connected to a standard laptop via an audio dac by Audiolase. The laptop runs custom laser software to control the laser. The custom controller interfaces with the laptop via a minipac keyboard controller.

Video

Some of the flickering in this video is an artefact of the video recording and it’s a lot smoother in person.
