2015-01-06 (Tu) Color/Touch Sensory Panel

The tangle of wires inside the enclosure was organized enough to move any wires out of the light light path so they would not cast shadows on the light diffuser. Hot glue and zip ties were used to bundle and hold the wires.

Wires moved out of the way

The polycarbonate sheets and light diffuser panels were installed using #4 screws. A small finger magnet was not enough to trigger the reed switch but a refrigerator magnet with a handle was sufficient and easily itself to an exposed screw for transport.

 Light diffuser and polycarbonate sheets installed. Left side has foggy surface protector for contrast

Surface protectors removed and lights on

Small magnet used to change modes

A video was made of the lights and modes changing. It may look better if the light diffuser panel and clear polycarbonate were replaced with a smoked or opaque polycarbonate sheet.
