Baking Orbs The Old Fashioned Way - Lasers

Magic via Science - Making Orbs with Lasers

By synchronizing these pulses and controlling them with software, our device can draw any 3D objects in air.

-Japanese National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology-

Researchers at the Japanese National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology listed their accomplishments in the field of 3D display systems using lasers to create dots of plasma out of air.
  1. We have used laser produced plasma technology to make a flashpoint in the air.
  2. We have greatly improved the brightness, contrast, and production distance of the plasma by optimizing the laser beams.
  3. Using a laser plasma, we have been the first to succeed in displaying "real 3D images" in a space where there is nothing but air.

Japanese researchers use lasers to creating plasma dots. Using computer controlled lasers allows for the creation of 3D dot matrix patterns in mid-air!

Another snippet:
"The device we have developed utilizes the plasma emission phenomenon near the focal point of focused laser light. By controlling the position of the focal point in the direction of the x-, y-, and z-axes, we have succeeded in displaying real 3D-images constructed by dot arrays in air (3D-space)."

This is cool.

I had posted an "Orb" photo on my blog. It was round, pink and sitting on my 5 year olds head. Very clear.

Maybe these are "natural".?

I didn't know you had a blog until now.

I checked the photo out.

Photography presents certain challenges, and one of those challenges is interpretation of the image - after you've captured it.

I'll post a link to your blog now that I know you have one.

I'll post in the future on this subject as I find it interesting.
