Big Fun with Lasers

Those of you who have been keeping up with my flights of imaginative fancy for a while know that I had a lot of fun creating laser displays for a bit. (See [The Cheap Laser Show->] for all the details.) You will also be aware that I’m a bit of a computer game junkie. Now there’s a project that combines both of these interests into one wacky project: LaserMAME. (It’s swamped at the moment, thanks to Slashdot.) The software allows you to play old vector graphics games like Tempest and Battle Zone using a laser controller to display the images, which can then be projected against a wall, a building, or the clouds if you’ve a powerful enough laser and don’t mind the FAA throwing you in jail. Neat.
