Default Re: An interesting magic eye substitution

The new, LED curing lamps that (extravagant) dentists use to set light-cured fillings apparently use a LED cluster made from dozens of ultra-bright Philips LEDs which are somehow machined so that they fit together in a honeycomb arrangement, resulting in an extremely compact light source. So if major manufacturers do it, surely we can too
Lumileds do powerful LED for this purpose, negating the need for LED clusters.

As you say though not cheap -and a bit bright for magic eye applications
