The Fog Machine has Arrived

My Chauvet Hurricane 1300 arrived today. First thing’s first–immediately unpack it, add some fog juice, and play!

For more size reference, I put a cheap Toys R’ Us fog machine on top of it. This thing is a beast!

This fogger has a 5 minute pre-heat time. Understandable considering it’s size. After warm-up, I grabbed the remote and hit the manual fog button for about 5 seconds.

Now, I’m not going to want to stand outside on Halloween night hitting the manual fog button all the time. Thankfully the Hurricane 1300 comes standard with a Timer remote. I set the interval and duration and activated the timer. The result was nothing short of amazing. After 3 10 second bursts of fog output (spaced about 30-45 seconds apart) I could barely see across the room. I have a webcam sitting on a shelf in this room and it captured this wonderful shot

Since you can’t tell, normally you can see through two doorways, into the living room (on the left) and my room (on the right). Lights were on in each room, although you can’t tell.

Needless to say I’m happy with my new toy 🙂

…I’ve also had all the windows open for about 30 minutes and a fan in one blowing fog outside and it still hasn’t completely cleared out…

UPDATE: I set some lights up outside real quick to see how it looked. Not ad for a quick setup! A friend of mine said some of the fog was lingering around a block away.
