Building "Disney-like" Fog Mist is really quite simple. All you need you can find at any electronic store, such as Radio Shack and at your local Walmart, Home Depot or hardware store.
Note: Since this project uses electricity and water, children should be monitored by adults when building this project and water and electricity should not mix. A GFI outlet or GFI circuit breaker should be used in this project.
Difficulty: Beginning hobbiest
Mist System available at WalMart.
Small low speed fans (optional)
Always keep bare wires apart from each other so the will not short and always unplug the transformer when connecting wires so you will not short the transformer.
Take a look at your garden or patio at sunset and determine where you might like fog to eminate from.
I thought you might like to know that Walmart now sells a mist sytem
similar to the system used by Disney to produce a fog mist. It is pretty
neat and runs off of a out door hose hook up. It is also pretty
inexpensive and can be found in the garden section. The one in my area
sells 2 types by differnt manufacturers but the nozzels look the same and
are probably from the same supplier. Have fun.
Note: Be sure to turn off the submersible pump when you aren't using it, as you will burn it up since the water has no place to go when there are no valves open.
Added a 9th nozzle that is aimed towards the sidewalk. When kids walk by shoot the water at them using the remote control!
I want to synchronize it to music using a Midi Device or microphone or connection to my stereo like Disney's Epcot of course!
I haven't been able to figure out the Laminar Flow Theory (all molecules flowing the same direction) to recreate the short tubes like Disney. Ideas?
