Nice work! Good luck with the final project smile

Why do you use a a box in box? I assume the inner box is for supporting the hardware and LCD. The outer what stands for?

yes, inner box holds camera, on the bottom, backlight led strips and a sandwich. outer box is for decoration (inner box is white) and for supporting a tabletop. and as you see, inner box is a bit shifted down, so there is a place for FCC coming from the matrix and PCBs.
over the table top, there will be a 3mm edge-polished acrylic with the same size as a table top. it will be painted in black from the bottom side, so the table will have a look. like a black glass top

I have some more photos. Added LCD electronics and 12 v PSU for IR and white LEDs. Also added metal legs. Legs are temporary, to make it for the fair, later I want to make another outer container where I mount this base and table will be able to tilt up, container also will house a PC part.

here are led strips, when they are on the light seems to be bright without LCD, but with LCD it’s a crap :( I will add some reflectors on walls.

hey zviangi smile

I really like to know the results of your setup with the LCD. As i proposed several days before here, we have the same approach for illumination. So it’s very interesting to know your results. smile

I have added mirrors, now much better.. here are some more photos.

one small problem:  if you see on photos, I use white light led strip for backlight. when it’s on, first several pieces of strips and more bright, than following ones, they are like gradually getting dim. Is it because of the insufficient current of power supply? I have added two stipr, that i connected directly to the power unit, they are most bright..

yes, but I will modify it later (now there is no time, 2 hour before the fair) to make a metal mirrors stitched on corners, so that it will not have a dark line of the corner.
some more pics of the tabletop-protection acrylic, just painted the bottom side

Why didn’t you just use the back light from the LCD instead of the led strips?
