I googled around for visible red lasers that connect via Molex connectors in the PC, but all I came up with were cheap red diodes that aren't lasers at all. I want to put a red laser in the PC and let it bounce off a few mirrors to give it this effect:
Now I'm not sure if it's viable, do lasers tend to fade and die pretty quickly if left on? I'd treat it like my plasma globe, only on once in a while or when there are guests. I've got one of those clear acrylic cases and I said farewell to my old UV tube lights ages ago. Time for something fresh. What do you think?
More importantly, would it hurt the eyes even though the beam isn't even pointing anywhere near you? I mean just looking at it as it is in that photo, (from the observable angle). See how the laser kinda glares (far left) is that something to be cautious about?
