Introduction: LED Infinity Mirror

Picture of LED Infinity Mirror

Theses infinity mirrors are pretty cool and easy to make. The concept of it that you have a regular mirror, with led lights in between the regular mirror and a two mirror. The two way mirror is a more expensive and you want it to be the same size as the regular mirror. I used 12 volt interter to power this otherwise you use battery packs.

This is how I power it

Step 1: Tools and Supplies:

Tools:

jig saw

pencil

wire strippers

solder iron

solder

glass cutter and oil/lube

drill

Supplies

4 - 6 inch pieces of wood

6 x 6 inch regular mirror

6 x 6 two way mirror

glue

20 red led

resistors

switch

Step 2: Making:

Cutting the wood for frame:

The size of my mirrors are 6 x 6 inches.

first you wanna cut the wood for the frame of your infinity mirror.

two of the sides are gonna be the width of the wood smaller to fit the frame.

there pretty much 6 inches but just use the mirror and wood to line up your cuts.

Step 3: Soldering the LED's

Picture of Soldering the LED's

I stripped wire to connect the leds to.

cut to strips for each piece of wood. solder a resistor in front of the leds.

solder all the positive ends of the leds to one of the wires
solder all the negative ends of the leds to the other wire.

once you glue the frame solder the negative from all for wood pieces together.

do the same with the positive wires.

i glued the leds and wires to the pieces of wood

Hello Sir i am Robert and i have been working on an infinity mirror. i
have the project built and have included pictures of the important
parts. i am using 62 Purple/UV LEDs voltage drop 3.0-3.2 at 20mA in a
3series by 20parallel configuration each series has its own 120ohm
current limiting resistor with a 2series with a 330 resistor left over. I
double checked the anode(+) to cathode(-) of each LED and made sure
none were burnt out and all were operating within their current range,
both individually and as an individual circuit but when i connect the
(wall-wart) adapter rated +-120Vac into 12Vdc 500mA I only light up the
2series LEDs. I removed them from the circuit and tried again but it
still wont work. i would appreciate any help you could give

I'll look threw might notes to see if I can offer and suggestions to help get it working

This is pretty cool looking, but I would HIGHLY recommend taking the photos without a flash. It's killing the effect.

good tip thanks
