In this paper, we present the design of a compact laser system for animation projections both indoors and outdoors. Our focus is on the hardware and software aspects of the electronic control of the system from the design phase to the experimental tests and evaluations. The main purpose behind our development efforts is the creation of an affordable laser system for research, entertainment and marketing purposes using contemporary advances in electronics, software development, semiconductor laser diodes and optics. The system is “smart” in the sense that it connects to other devices and the Internet via a WiFi network, so that in addition to doing standalone laser projections, it also has remote control and remote debugging capabilities. Via its two embedded microcontrollers, the system offers an easy integration into existing Internet of Things (IoT) infrastructure. The experimental results are very promising and bring us closer to creating a viable product from both a technological and an economic standpoint.
