Stars with frickin' laser beams!

Laser projector puts the night sky on your wall

Laser Stars

About a month ago, we wrote about the HomeStar Pro Planetarium , which uses LEDs to project the night sky on your ceiling. Here's another one for the astronomy buffs: Laser Stars, a projector that beams star and cloud formations onto your wall or ceiling of choice with laser technology and holographics. For those of us who live in brightly lit cities where we can't really see any real stars at night, it's a cool idea.

The Laser Stars projector looks to be less for nuts-and-bolts astronomy buffs than for people who just like to look at a pretty night sky, as its description doesn't say anything about specific constellations or seasons. But at $180, it costs quite a bit less than the LED projector, which goes for about $350.
