I think american DJ or chauvet actually make a "blacklight cannon" that uses this bulb, but because UV light doesn't really refract or reflect very efficiently, I'm not sure how well it works.FlyingMonkey wrote:That's HUGE!
Now if you had a couple of those, a mirror, & a lens, you could make a UV spotlight & give the man a nice tan.
Actually, that light scares me a little.
I do have a 2000mw violet laser that creates a visible spot on things at vast distances, but obviously for safety reasons (it will also set things on fire up close) that's not part of my playa plan. "Luminous Devices" makes some incredible UV LEDs that I think would scare me more than this giant thing. The biggest one they make is a 20 watt chip that's only 4.5x3.5mm or so. Unfortunately they are quite expensive, but if one were to build a strip array out of a bunch of them, I think you could get close to the "suntan the man" range of output :p.
