Levitating Death Star with a Working Green Laser


A hacked Levitron ™ anti gravity globe and some customs electronics with a working green laser and wireless remote control. Ok, I didn’t do the 7 converging lasers héhé, but it turned out pretty well, that was just a quick WE project ! Build log & details www.plecterlabs.com Enjoy, thanks for watching ! Erv’

    Don’t forget to add the TIE fighter that The Millenium Falcon was pursuing!!

    I was thinking about your comment about the converting lasers that make a cone shape from the Death Star. It would be great if you could melt together a small cone out of fiber optic strands from a cable. You would probably need to add a few LED’s around the dish but it would be cool if you could get the green light to follow the fiber optic stands to the tip of the cone. Just an idea, I don’t know if it will work.

    should have bought the 100 mW laser then, to pop up ballons héhé. I could have a miniature millenium falcon close to it so that I could fake the tractor beam 🙂

    thanks for the comments guys ! Like someone said on fx-sabers, the second channel of the remote controlling the red LED is the tractor beam that caught the Millenium Falcon 😉

    futher details on the paint job is *still* considered. It has to be painted due to the spherical nature of the objects, stickers won’t work… too bad. I’d need decals actually.

    OMG… that will be so sweet later on with more detail work!! Either in the form of overlays, or actual carving/shaping out the thing!! Awesome… 🙂

    Oh, and the single “laser” is just fine, hahhaha… no need to go nuts attempting the 7 converging… lol
