The lighting certainly works well when it's in "niteclub mode", looking forward to seeing it in the daylight!
If I could just find a miniature disco ball and pole dancers . . . .
Even in the daytime, with flash, the midplate was just so overpoweringly brite that even dimming the led strip didn't really address it well,
Here, . . . Hold my beer
, . . . I mean Dom Perignon . . this is the Caselabs owners club . . .
I gots me an idear, . . . I'm gonna try somethin', might be dangerous . . .
So I tried a little experiment . . . .
I cut a little piece of window tinting film that was lying about from just such previous experiments, and layed it on top of the midplate.
And Voila, it actually worked pretty well, . . . . keep in mind the film is just laying on the midplate, not actually adhered to it yet . .
Took out the overbrite harshness, and as a bonus, added I a little infinity mirror effect around the edges and along the center seam.
Definitely a major plus
Going to have the film applied to the panel pieces, and see if I can source some actual glass two way mirror and a large enough diamond grit holesaw . . .
