The Subtle Art of LED’s

IMG_4953

To alert the user of their goal being reached, and to aid with feedback in the setup process, each GLANCE is equipped with subtle LED backlighting. The big challenge with LED’s is diffusing the light in an elegant way. I chose 1/4 inch frosted acrylic to aid in the diffusion, but still needed to place several LED’s around the interior to create a more even glow.

I am mostly happy with the result, but I know I could do better with smaller or more LED’s.

The LED’s pulse slowly when GLANCE is being configured, and when the user reaches their goal.
