This is an easy way to etch on acrylic with a stencil and a dremel.
In this video I made an acrylic base with LED illumination to make the Stark logo of Game of Thrones pop out..
You will need:
- A stencil with the image that you want.
- Dremel and Dremel bits.
- Acrylic piece
- Philips light sensor LED SpotON
- Wire and soldering iron
- Rubber feet
Step 1: Trace the Image
Trace the stencil on the acylic with the dremel.
Step 2: Hack the Electronics
Open the Philips light sensor LED SpotON and take out the 3 LEDs.
I used this light sensor because it uses a PIR sensor.
Extend the connections of the LEDs with wire.
Make a hole with a drill on the sensor case on the right upper corner.
Step 3: Drill
Make 3 holes on the acrylic piece to place the 3 LEDs.
Place 4 Rubber feet on the corners of the acrylic.
Step 4: And You're Done!!!
Place the base beside the bed and now when you want to find your phone or glass of water just wave your hand on top of the base and light will turn on and help you find your things Game of Throne stylle.
