    I made one of these last night for my fog machine, it really helps keep that fog on the ground where it belongs! I improved the design a little by using some of that expanding foam spray insulation to seal it up and waterproof it.

    Better yet, if you have a fog machine and access to a good laser pointer, you can build this:

    I'm going to try and find a green laser pointer locally tonight and make one up by the weekend. It's surprisingly simple to build.

    That whole website is full of cool shit you can make on the cheap.

    Probably a mad scientist. I'm building all this for a friends party as a surprise, so it fits.

    I believe they will be impressed, they think fake cobwebs are the height of decoration.

    This kid I knew in high school used to do his own haunted house, and really made a production out of it.

    One year, he had a room w/ black and white vertical stripes on all the walls, and a strobe light. You stepped in, and after a second, these two guys in full body suits with identical width stripes stepped away from the wall and walked towards you. Because of the strobe effect, it totally looked like they were randomly teleporting closer to you.

    I built the laser vortex last night, and it worked great, but both the crappy laser pointers I was using burned out.

    I learned something - you can't hook up laser pointers that use button cell batteries to regular AA batteries, even if the voltages are the same. Now I need to find a decent pointer before Halloween.

    I got a 300mw laser from there that when attached to a flywheel, makes a laser tunnel without any smoke at all. It also blinds you.

    Some you win, some you lose.
