Ceiling Projector

«When I look at a gas nebula, all I see is a cloud of dust, but seeing the universe through your eyes allowed me to experience … wonder.»
Q to Vash, in Star Trek DS9: «Q-Less»

Recently stumbled upon two old photos of using a ceiling projector. A simple toy for children that uses some cut plastic to project a night sky to the ceiling. Well, «your planet is engulfed by a cosmic cloud kind of night sky»:

Still, the projector does look cool. It reminds me of this scene from «Mass Effect: Andromeda»:

While the game was the worst — not simply bad, but a huge contrast between what it could have been with better writing and what it was — it did have a few nice ideas. Also reminds me of the da Vinci/Dali shadow play to stimulate ideas.

And yeah, the projector did create some nice effects. Something to think about if you are looking for something «waow» for the ceiling (hmm, wish I still had it). 🙂
