How It Works
The SkyMan contains a small high quality mirror mounted on the end of a galvanometer scanner (like the pros use). You bounce your laser off this mirror. When a sound signal is applied (signal generator, CD player, soundcard output or even a AC wall wart) the scanner sweeps back and forth creating the liquid sky pattern. The scan size depends on the input signal strength and is easily varied up to 45 degrees in width.
What It Includes
All of the components are BRAND NEW.
The setup includes one galvanometer scanner with front surface mirror and mirror mount, an aluminum right angle mounting bracket with a 1/4 inch signal input jack and manual.
You need to supply the signal sources, a laser and any fog.
Works With ANY Laser
SkyMan works with any laser from the simplest laser pointer, on up. Simply aim your laser at the SkyMan mirror and let the fun begin. Use a modulatable laser and add an additional fantastic category of effects. See below for examples.

Go Even Further With These Optional Items
Powerful Liquid Sky Signal Generation Software
Use the Babette software program to leverage the sound card in your laptop or desktop computer as a signal source. The precision digital generator allow you to create a wide range signals to generate Lisuid Sky effects. You can even store 48 of your favorites and recall them at anytime. You can even play them live! Babette can even control two SkyMan units at the same time. The Windiows based Babette software is supplied on floppy disk or may be downloaded from our site. Note that some sound cards may require a headphone amplifier to generate the necessary signal levels for maximum sky size.
Add a Modulated Laser!

Add one of our modulated lasers and go completely crazy!
Imagine breaking the liquid sky up into individual fingers of light; or two skies comming in from different sides, bouncing and becoming one. That and more is all possible when you add a modulated laser source to the unit. Drive it with your signals or purchase our optional controllers. Many complete modulatable lasers are available from us as well. See below or email us for more information.
Use Our Pre-Built Controllers
We also offer several optional pre-built controllers.
Model I - generates the necessary signals for a linear sky effect. The sky input has a size control
Model II - generates the necessary signals for a linear sky effect, and has a speaker input for a music modulated sky effect. Both the sky and music inputs have size controls
Model III - has a linear sky effect, a line level input music input, a single beam position control, and a TTL level laser modulation signal output.
Please contact us if you would like to order any of the optional controllers.
