My Workspace (contest entry)



For all who are wondering, I based my table cover off of this 'ible here - Just enlarged it to my liking :)
Also I based my glowing mouse pad from here
cool but does the mouse work since the pad is clear.

yeah, but only because its an old analog rolly-mouse thing. If you use a laser mouse it wont work unless you put some sort of dark fabric/material over it...
i like your mouse pad!! did you make or buy it. if you bought it can you tell me where?

I made it. Essentially there are retail versions (google glowing mouse pad), but I made mine of of the ible here. It was pretty good, except I think I got lucite (hard plexiglass) instead of acrylic, so it was pretty hard to cut. Also i had to fit it to my desk a little so I ground off the corners (that was for my old desk). Apparently I have a short, must've happened when I re-soldered the leds a few days ago. I made mine with some RGB LED's, so it could change to multiple colors, not it can do blue all the way, and bright red, but no green changes or mixing/dimming any colors but blue. Its actually blue-green though :)I have lots more info if you want so just ask.
Oh it cost about $20 to make, just FYI if you want a price estimate. I got the plastic in 3 sheets so I could make 3, so that was a little more $$
