View Full Version : CITC The MANIAC LED Fog Machine

08-11-2015, 05:38 PM
Saw a post on FB about this - wicked cool device - HERE (http://www.pnta.com/lighting/fixtures/moving-lights/citc-the-maniac-led-fog-machine/?gclid=Cj0KEQjwuqauBRDhnfvnxMvKy6UBEiQAmTLQu7d1U-ZYbAi-U7NGZvL2zi2mwqsJBK3ZasLOyAGD-xAaAiaf8P8HAQ). So the price is not so nice but being a DIY group this would be pretty cool to replicate in some fashion. Moving heads are not new but the fogger built-in with the lights are what take this over the top. I would even give up the movement portion if I could have the fogger/light part of it...

That is way cool. I want one. But it's a little out of my price range

Seems it would be easy to do this with any fogger as long as you don't want movement. $150 for a decent fog machine http://www.amazon.com/Chauvet-Lighting-Hurricane-1301-Machine/dp/B00IH0BOPK/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1439331138&sr=8-1&keywords=chauvet+hurricane+1300

Then build a fog chiller if you want the fot to last longer and be close to the ground https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fHEN2LLpRNE

Of course the blower in that video is super expensive but you get the idea more fog then you would ever need. Stick a Smart RGM LED flood near the Fog machine to shine into the fog.

I actually have a Hurricane 1300 and my own fog chiller that I built - it's more the compactness of the thing and the lights around it (which would not be the hard part of course). Good idea though - guess a piece of PVC to route the output up with a ring of bright LEDs would do it - have to think about it... Then again, I need another project like a another hole in my head...

That really is impressive. I am curious how they pipe the fog fluid up to the head (where I assume the heating element is) while maintaining that amount of movement.

Dear Santa,

I've been a good boy this year. Perhaps you can combine all my presents into one.............................

If you want colored fog and can do without the moving head, check out the American DJ Fog Fury Jett
or the Chauvet Geiser RGB

Dear Al,

I've already allowed a blinky show and all that it takes to have it going. Sorry, but we have a mortgage to pay off. :blush:

The problem is that one is not going to be enough, you need at least 4 to be really cool
