    Re: changing the diffusion of the LEDs, per the article.

    You can make big changes in the diffusion pattern of the LEDs by reshaping the “lens” end of them — cutting them flat across, drilling down into them with a large bit (making a conical diffuser into the tip)or drilling a small tube into them. I suppose if you had the patience (I don’t), you could regrind the end to change the focal characteristics.

    Cool project. A little too much involved in programming the chip. If it was an off the shelfer…I would jup all over this. Great work man!
