One way acrylic?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, anyone know of any places I can get one way mirror acrylic, so that if i say have a switch for cold cathodes behind it, the mirror portion vanishes and shows the light on the other side?

Hard to explain, hopefully it makes enough sense

its probably higher quality but 2-3 times the price of the ac ryan stuff

You can but it's not cheap. The few places I know of that sell it usually costs around $100 for a 2'x4' sheet (like here). I was actually researching this myself a while back and I figured it would be much cheaper to make your own by using the mirror auto window tint. But I never experimented with it to know if it is a suitable replacement.

there is a spray or some sort of film thing to make the acrylic 1 way...but i've heard its very very very expensive

well cost really isn't a big deal, but im more looking for the exact usage of having light from the one way side overtake the mirror side. IE computer turns on, acrylic becomes transparent and you see the color, etc.

hmm that sounds rather....rather cool concept, but I don't think such a thing exists....I could be wrong....but yea, i don't think a material like you described exists
