Infravision: Illuminator Testing

Here is the circuit board and parts for the infrared illuminator for that will allow the robots to have stereo vision in the dark.

These boards were made with the PCB 'Fab-In-A-Box' which is awesome.

The first illuminator being assembled with white LEDs for testing and use as headlights.

The light output is roughly 195,000 millicandella with the white LEDs. I think I may try to make a lamp out of this.

This images looks a little more diffuse then it appears to the human eye, but the semi-opaque white panel seems to work well as a diffuser.
