Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Remember the nebulous, psychedelic sky from Flash Gordon? (We're talking 'Gordon's Alive?' Flash, not the rickety old B/W series). Well imagine looking at it through a kaleidoscope from inside Jim Morrison's altered state of mind and you'd begin to understand the mesmerizing beauty of the Laserpod.

Yes indeed, light lovers; using the latest in laser, LED and crystal optics, the incredible Laserpod brings science and nature together to create ever-changing organic light forms of profound beauty.

At least that's what it says on the box. But in this case, we'd have to agree.The effect is not dissimilar to a kind of hi-tech, souped-up lava lamp.

But all this is just a preamble to the main event.

Because with the diffusers in place, the Laserpod acts as a spectacularly captivating piece of ambient lighting.

Remove them, though, and the room is immediately transformed into a mind-boggling supernova of nebulous kaleidoscopic light.

Try saying that after a few pints of loudmouth soup! (Which, incidentally, is probably the best time to appreciate the marvellously mind numbing qualities of the Laserpod).

You can choose between two dazzling displays - red laser for a scintillating astral projection or a red laser / blue LED combination for awesome cosmic cloud effects.

Box Contains

  • Aluminum laserpod lamp unit

    This was a poor purchase. Cheaply made, noisy and very average in performance. I was expecting so much more after reading the reviews so when it turned out so badly I did a bit of research. At least two of the reviewers for this product that gave a high rating did exactly the same for the Laser Cosmos which also seems to be a flop in reality. There is something a little odd going on here.

    I got one from Amazon last year and loved the effect. After a year of infrequent use (less than 12 hours a month) the motor that turns the crystal stopped working which ruins the effect. I took it apart to examine it (since I was 7000 miles from UK by then) and found that the motor was very poor quality unit which could not be replaced, I would expect this to be a common problem so the units will have a short life.

    Given the 2 extremes of opinion in these reviews (and mine tends to veer towards the negative, in particular with M.F. Clayton) I am left wondering whether the mounting of the crystal that diffracts the light which, after all, is the heart of the thing could maybe shift or bend in transit as the effects are nowhere near as spectacular as the most positive review leads you to believe. OK it's pretty, but I was expecting a similar effect to that given by the old-fashioned suspended mirror-balls that you used to get in discos and this is definitely not the case. Maybe suspending a miniature one above it might work -- we have some christmas tree bausbles that look just like that (which was what inspired me to buy the thing after 'er indoors commented on the pretty effect they made during the day when the sun shone on them through the window) so I'll give 'em a try. Overall, a bit underwhelming after unwrapping on Cristmas morning given the cost.

    The novelty will wear thin after a few hours. I put mine on ebay 2 days later as it was just gathering dust. I was expecting huge lasers and lights and felt embarrassed when showing my parents and friends. All you get is a few dots on the ceiling that move around every now and again! AVOID!
