As curious as I am, I opened up the LCD screen of an old laptop that would have been thrown away otherwise.
What I found inside seemed to be the most interesting material ever! There were multiple sheets of plastic that looked to be metallic and shiny, but reflected and diffused light in strange ways.
Trying to come up with a fun project, I settled on diffuser glasses.
--I honestly do not know what to call these things, polarizers or diffusers. Whatever they may be, please let me know, so I can put up the correct information!
I'll take you step by step to make these fun, yet disorienting glasses.
Note: I will not be responsible for broken monitors or concussions! :)
1. An old laptop or some spare sheets of this diffuser stuff. Old cellphones or anything with an LCD should work.
2. RealD 3D Glasses! (I got mine from Avatar, but really any fairly large glasses without lenses are fine)
3. Flat and phillips head screwdrivers
4. Small pocketknife, or anything with a thin blade that gives you good leverage
6. White paper
8. Scotch tape
