Default Re: Colour mixing in mechanical television

Your eye sees directly to the LEDs, off the mirror of the screw, through the slot, to the rear of the box. Arranging the LEDs in a row won't help, as my experiment with the fibers demonstrated. You can see each fiber (or LED), creating a confusing bunch of red, blue and green lines in the picture.

If it were possible to get extremely small LEDs (.1mm or so) then arranging them vertically would work. That was what I was trying to accomplish with the fiber optic approach, but the .75mm diameter of the fibers was too large.
