There will be firefly like laser beams flying through the forest this year at the California WorldFest after dark this year.
Lasers and Lights is supplying BlissLights “MOTION” moving beam laser projectors to add their magical lighting effects to the forest and surroundings, for the first time!
Every year the WorldFest has 4 days of music on multiple stages with world class musicians like Nahko & Medicine for the People, SambaDa and Boz Scaggs. Camping is available on site and the surrounding Nevada City, Grass Valley community is filled with a tourist’s paradise of hotels, B&Bs, restaurants, as well as serene rivers and lakes.
These laser starfield projectors send an array of thousands of tiny laser beams in 160 degrees for hundreds of feet giving the appearance of fireflies in the trees.
These magical lighting effects have become popular at festivals around the world.

In memory of the world famous musician and performer Prince, Lasers and Lights collaborated with local community radio station KVMR to create this purple themed laser and LED display outside the KVMR offices in Nevada City, CA. We join fans across the globe who mourn this great performer’s passing and celebrate his trend setting creativity that has inspired so many.
SCROLL DOWN TO FIND A SERIES OF VIDEOS OF PRINCE’ MOST FAMOUS PERFORMANCES.
San Francisco paid respect to the unparalleled icon by turning the exterior lights of City Hall appropriately purple. As expected, folks gathered at Civic Center Plaza to pay tribute by blaring choice Prince tunes, and dancing together throughout the night.
Here is a dose of PURPLE RAIN for Nevada City locals to share as we celebrate the works and inspiration of Prince after his passing.
Here is PRINCE’s phenomenal performance at his induction into the ROCK & ROLL Hall of Fame in 2004 with Tom Petty, Steve Winwood, Jeff Lynne and others playing “While My Guitar Gently Weeps”. He finishes his epic guitar solo and then throws his guitar into the audience and walks off stage. The rest is history!
and on and on………
DID YOU KNOW THAT PRINCE DID ALL THESE CONCERTS IN THE CITIES THAT WERE HURTING AND GAVE ALL THE VENDORS SALES TO COMMUNITY GROUPS.
DID YOU KNOW PRINCE WROTE ALL THESE SONGS????…………
We have shared the earth with a master performer speaking to our hearts direct from his heart………. to inspire us all to do the same!

Here you can see raindrops crossing laser beams and sparkling for a moment. This is actually far more dramatic in person since the camera cannot capture as much of the light as the eye does.
Here you can see the way the beam patterns change as water drops hit or move across the lens of the green and blue laser projectors.
Whenever you change the angle of moving laser beams to a surface they are shining on the speed of their movement across the surface changes. When the projector is aimed at 90 degrees to the surface, like a movie projector onto a screen at the movie theater, the beams are at the slowest rate, which also appears faster as the projector is moved further from the screen. When the angle of the screen to the beams is changed the beams get faster and faster, as the video above demonstrates as the beams cross from the overhanging eave to the wall and back again. Watch how they speed up on the overhang versus the wall and take advantage of this in your projector placement.
You can have amazing light shows like these outside your window when you place a laser projector towards your home in the rain or fog.
Find a wide variety of laser projectors like these on our web site at http://www.LasersandLights.com
The BlissLights Spright series is the original and highest quality laser projector of this kind and Lasers and Lights was the first company to ever represent this line of lasers to the world in 2007. We supply an array of projectors, mounting equipment and low voltage wiring to make for dazzling, simple and safe displays at your home and events.
Here are some still photos that capture aspects of this study of laser beams effects in rain.

Watch this video to see the dramatic contrast in brightness in laser beams and all lighting depending the darkness of the surface or “screen” being projected on to. Here is a brief demonstration of the variation in brightness of a green laser beam from a BlissLights Bliss 50 as it passes from a white wall to a dark brown door. You can find these Laser and LED projectors for inside and outside displays on our web site at http://www.LasersandLights.com
Consider this dramatic difference when planning lighting displays and favor white or light surfaces. For even more dramatic bright lighting add a fine water haze or layers of thin white veil fabrics to bring out the 3D effects inherent in these holographic projections.
You will find this and many other transformative projectors a our web site http://www.LasersandLights.com for homes, parties, dance events, festivals, meditation studios, gardens, weddings and more.

California Organics restaurant in Nevada City opens the ceilings into space with Bliss 15 BlissLights laser starfield projectors in both dining rooms. The holographic projections of a soothing starry night sky make ceilings and walls disappear into infinite space as the lasers and blue LED cloudfield gently move creating a relaxing mood. While enjoying this lovely lighting effect you will find delicious organic food on the menu of this famous restaurant in the 7 Hills District off Zion Street.
Try transforming your home, bedroom or party into a planetarium like expansive appearance with a single projector with prices starting at $149.
As you view the lighting effects from different angles and ambient lighting you get varying depths of visual appearance and color saturation. The apparently purple tones are entirely related to the camera and not visible to the eye. Another exciting way to get a similar effect is the combination of the Indoor/Outdoor BlissLights “MOTION” projector combined with the Indoor/Outdoor Blue LED Moving Water projector.
Even in daylight this striking effect is very attractive and at night it becomes even more entrancing.

Watch how the combination of the BlissLights “MOTION” with Green Laser & Blue LED Moving Water Effect can transform your home, party, wedding or any indoor or outdoor display!
Up until now the BlissLights Bliss 15 and Bliss 50 have been the only ways to create the magical 3D starry night sky effect that has made their projectors famous. Now for half the cost these two projectors can create a more exciting display with an infinite number of variations with either of 3 colors and 10 speeds of lasers movement from static to fast. You can even layer multiple MOTION laser projectors on the same surfaces at different speeds or use the Red or Blue Lasers for even more unique.
This video was recorded at the Guava nightclub in Emeryville, CA in 2015.
