AjoLicht: A Cheap Party LED Matrix « hacked from pieces. In the beginning of 2011, i was asked to create some light effect for electronic music partys. it had to be robust and simple, the budget was just 200 Euros. my first thought was obviously an LED matrix. but as i experienced in my former matrix projects, these things can be expensive. after a short brainstorming, we came up with the following concept: we decided to build single panels that contain five RGB LEDs in a row. these panels can be mounted on the ceiling and are either distributed in the room or combined to form a matrix. the design was kept very simple and therefore cheap, which allowed us to build a few panels with the budget and extend the project if more money is available. so what’s on that board?

This made me think that I could just make them dimmer and leave them on the whole night, so I’ve found a simple method to replace the bulb and mirror with a LED. The choice is orange, because i already had them and because orange light seems more pleasant while waking up at night for a fridge walk. The spot lights, coming from Ikea, were quickly stripped of the bulb and mirror.

Build the LED ARRAY ILLUMINATOR - Page 1 of 12. A long range infrared illuminator can be made using many LEDs There are times when the small infrared LED ring built into a security camera will not cover the range or field of view you require, so you will need to find another invisible light source.

Some large infrared illuminators use powerful incandescent light sources that are passed through an infrared pass filter, causing only the infrared component of the light to come through the filter. These types of infrared illuminators create intense heat due to the fact that the white light source must be fully enclosed and burn the unwanted light energy off as radiated heat.
