Disco lights have come a long way from the first mirror balls in the 1960s. Nowadays, the disco light possibilities range from simple coloured beams over strobe lights to flowers, stars and other figures. And best of all, they can be sound-activated to flash in rhythm with the music. Whether you're planning a party, a light show or a music festival, sound-activated disco lights intensify the experience and make the project unique.

Fibre-Optic Spray Disco Lamps

Fibre-optic spray lamps add fun to almost any project. They come on a stand, and some are as tall as four feet high. They have many different light and sound effect programs, and you can also set them to respond to your own sounds and music. For an indoor party or get-together, put these lamps into the corners of a room and let them light up in rhythm to the music or conversation. For outdoor parties, hide them in bushes and place them on tables to add atmosphere and novelty. The spray disco lamp is also perfect for children's parties and casual get-togethers, family reunions and wedding or baby showers.

Disco Lights for Home Systems

The smaller voice-activated disco lights are about seven inches across and four inches high and sit on any even surface. They can project four different types of light shows onto the ceiling or the walls. You can also tilt them and get a cool wash effect. They easily connect to your MP3 player or your home audio system and sync to your own music with the flick of a switch. With one of these small lights, you can party all by yourself. Or get your favourite friend or friends together for games or conversation and add atmosphere with your very own disco light. Lighten up your daily chores while listening to your music and watching your own, personal light show.

Sound-Activated Strobe Lights

Sound-activated strobe lights are perfect for teen or dance parties. They add a surrealistic flair to the dance, flashing a bright white light on and off in rhythm with the music. Some strobe lights are made with LEDs, which gives you cheaper light with great effects. Many strobe lights have built-in programs and can be linked with other strobes for an even more intense effect. These strobe lights can be large and need to be mounted, but they turn a party into a never-before-experienced wonderland.
