I’ve rebuilt my table. I grew tired of fighting IR daylight in my work room, so I decided to enclose the lower part.
I used some laminated pine planks and a bit of plywood, two slide bolts, 2 hinges and some flat black paint.
It even has adjustable feet that have padding on them for hardwood floors.

NOTE: see this thread about black paint on acrylic.: http://nuigroup.com/forums/viewthread/2252/ ...wow, was that a close call!

So here’s some pics of the new table with front access to the innards and the slot for the beamer.

The beamer slot:

I like the fact that there’s room for my feet now when I stand in front of it. This is afterall, a development table. So the beamer poking out the back is not a problem.

I’ll have to try it out tomorrow in the daytme. Still have to try out some IR filtering window film on the top. I found some at the hardware store last week. Just need to go back and get it while I have the funds.

BTW, all totaled, so far I’ve spent about $500 on this project. Not bad. wink

Thanks. wink

It was pretty cheap to build. The wood and supplies I needed cost about $60.

Well my table finished, functional and stable. I don’t think there’s anything more I want to do to it’s form.
It’s been a lot of fun learning about optics, the IR light spectrum, LED wiring, acrylics, silicones, projectors, projection materials, CCDs, CMOS sensors and more!

I think it’s time to bring this thread to an end.
Thanks for all the help and input, and thanks for this forum.

It’s time to start developing the music player software.
You can follow along with the development of Audio Fingers in this thread:
