  • i'm digging that etching a lot.

    i really need to enclose my stribe.

  • Etching acrylic is really cool! Check the attached Space Invader test I did...

    It would be possible to etch part of the top panel where the touchstrips are placed, divide it into parts/scale, cover the leds with a pattern or a full panel illustration or photo of your cat/dog/gf/logo/etc.. ;-)

    @josh: I'm still curious how the transparent frosted panel looks when mounted on a working stribe :-D

  • that's crazy! how big is that piece of perspex? the detail looks really fine!

  • @xndr: I'll be able to try it out next week - a quick test-fit looked nice, though you can see the different colored bar-graphs through it when turned off - the thing I liked about the really frosted piece was it hid the bar-graph cases a bit - but the new one is likely to show a lot more light.

  • @Mr modnaR: The fluor piece is about the size of a cd/jewel case, the other part is twice the size of a monome faceplate, and yeah the details are pixel perfect! I modified this script a bit so I could use the output for engraving: http://www.levitated.net/daily/levInvaderFractal.html (that guy makes really nice computational artworks!!)

    The downside is that engraving takes a lot of time, the big piece took over 40 minutes to make.

    @Ultra: Great! Can't wait to see it in action!
