We did it. Here is our house posted on Youtube. http://youtu.be/bQu5UYU2Td0 This is using 7 laser projectors including a 300 mw blue laser motor projector. It is saving tons in electricity, and the projector cost has proven to be less then replacing broken strands of lights. The drawbacks are that I don't run them in inclement weather and the lasers don't like being in weather under 45 degrees, although that is not much of an issue here in Southern California. I created a light tree using an old Halogen utility light. I simply place the projector tree out every night (cabled and locked to a tree) along with a powered speaker to run audio connected to a cheapo mp3 player. A couple other small projectors are placed by hand on the ground facing some empty spots. The projectors all have the capability of being run from a DMX512 controller, but I have chosen to simply have the projectors set to sound trigger. The video here does not show the music triggering the sound as the sound track was added later in the video editing, But you can get the idea. Let me know if you have any questions. This is the first I've seen anybody do anything quite like this. I've seen the use of lasers before, but not quite like this. The video doesn't really do it justice, you have to be there, but I think you can get the idea. Next year I hope to add an animation laser projector.
