New Dome Logics installed

As the avid reader might have noticed, a while ago, I decided to upgrade my logic displays in the droid from just standard LED’s to using fiber optics, something that was also used in the original droids.

I ran into an issue when I was almost all done, and part of the plastic bezel that held it all in place broke.

A new bezel was ordered, arrived quickly, and I then set out to reroute 96 new small fibre optic cables.

Here’s a video of what it looked like before upgrading. The LED’s blink and a little too fast, and it is really only white and blue LED’s going on and off.

The original droid used fibre optics connected to a colour wheel, so it more morphed in between white and blue. This is what it looks like now:

Much better, I think.

What’s your opinion?
