Lasers are lights that use a laser diode and mirrors to project different widths of light plus give beam so of light multiple colors.

DJ lighting equipment that is awesome involves liquid light shows. Psychedelic light became popular in the 1960s and 1970s and included layers of colored mineral oils and alcohol that move under the heat of the lamp. This produces different color patterns and produces an almost hypnotic effect.
