Coming soon: first video of fiber+panels
The parabolic reflector hasn't arrived in the mail yet, but I did get five feet of fiber from starceiling123.com, just to play around with. I got the cheapest kind, ($0.74/foot), but man is it small. It's essentially a bundle of 8 0.75 mm fibers. Check it out. It makes me wonder how many fibers I'll need to get sufficient light into each panel. It gets me thinking about the placement of the fibers on the panel. It makes me think that I'll need to spend more money and get bigger fibers. I'm eyeing another site, called TriNorthLighting.com that might have better deals. Hrm, on closer inspection, it looks like it has better deals in some cases but not others.
Okay! This weekend I'll play around to see what works. I'll post video too.
