Similar thing to that link, was pulled apart and had the hard drive motor spinning a small mirror to scan the X Tangent around and the head unit was mounted 90 degress with another mirror to make the y tangent oscillate. It worked surprisingly well.

this one is being scanned by physically spinning the hard disl platter forward and backward and the head "voice coils" pming a sting to make the gluegunned mirror vibrate.
