Uchiage Hanabi Fireworks Projector

The Uchiage Hanabi Fireworks Projector from Sega Toys is true to the name – it’s a projector for a room in your house that projects moving images of fireworks on the walls and ceiling. This thing is pretty awesome! The unit uses five customizable lenses, and “projection plates” that are apparently also customizable. The video is cool:

The only bummer is that they’re not shipping until August 1. It’s $166 USD.

Mangekyorooms – Room Projector

Good morning, everyone, sorry for the late start – I’m still catching up on sleep from the last 10 days!

I ran across an interesting light toy this morning – I’m ga-gaa (as you can expect) for toys and gadgets that employ light for fun, like the pool projector I posted about a while back.  This gadget is called the Mangekyo Room Projector, and it’s a projecting light that casts beautiful colored patterms over your walls and ceiling.  The projector comes with seven disc-shaped trays for projecting patterns, and comes with beads that allow customization to a point.  If you don’t want to light up the room, you can light up the dome under the projector instead.

The principle is kaleidoscopic in nature, as is the price.  It’s running around $150 +/- a few dollars right now.
