How Fibre Optics Can Make Crazy Hyperspace Visuals

By Eric Limer on at

We all know what it's supposed to look like when you go into hyperspace thanks to classic scenes in movies such as Star Wars and shows like Star Trek. But how do you create that look, you know, shy of building a hyperspace engine. It's a head-scratcher. Literally, in this case.

With a mix of long exposure, fiber optics, and actual head-scratcher, it's possible to create a hyperspace drive right in your living room if you're so inclined. Building a ship that could create that kind of light show in real life might be a little bit harder, but in the meantime, this is a pretty effective approximation. [Shanks FX]
