Default Re: An interesting magic eye substitution

LEDs are very forgiving of butchery. In the days before PCs were used in control systems I used to design and build mimic diagrams for control rooms.

We used to carve LEDs up into all sorts of interesting shapes to make illuminated symbols in tiled mimics. (Even the blue Siemens ones which were IIRC abot 18.00 each ).

Regards,
