I’ve created a version of the classic arcade game Asteroids using lasers and got it running on the ESP32.

The game is displayed using a laser which is directed using mirrors. You can find kits on eBay (search for laser galvo).

You can find a few more details on how this works in a previous video where we create some laser shows with the ESP32 - https://youtu.be/bl1e54QGJk4

All in all, it’s a pretty successful project. Even with my very low power 5mw laser, I can get around 2m x 2m projection at a good brightness in a dark room.

Thanks for watching - and don’t forget to subscribe for more projects like this. We’ll be doing a bit more audio investigations soon while we build-up to the next big project.

Thanks!
