This project is made by H?¥kon A. Hjortland. The idea is pretty simple and original. He used rotating mirrors to create a video projection. 16 differently tilted mirrors were fixed on a round drum that spins at about 20 a€“ 30 s-1. Each mirror draw a separate line on a screen. For each pixel, the laser is turned on or off. Resolution isn’t very bit -just 16 pixels at each line. But it gives a nice impression.



As Author states calibration is a hardest part of project. Especially Y direction of mirrors, that each mirror draw a separate line on screen. X calibration is done by software.

The fun part is a Firmware. Program is written in AVR-GCC language. What it does is redraws a frame every 4 or 5 frames.
