    I used glass because it is more rigid than plexi but plexi should be ok. Use at least 3mm thick.

    Specialist films - yes :)

    macroman, do you have any leftovers?
    Since I'm in a country without stores :cries: i can't get those films anywhere.
    Could you send me by mail a sheet of silver film and a sheet of that 3D film?
    I would really appriciate it.

    Wow that looks GREAT! I am definitly going to try to make that.

    You already answered my question too :)
    I will be using Acrylic instead of the glass.

    Thanks! :) Keep up the great work!

    That is really, really sweet. Could you use a bunch of glowire and something to diffuse it to make a more uniform glow?:idea:

    Nice. Very nice.

    Question: How does the thickness of the pad work out for use?
    6mm for the glass/acrylic and probably a couple more for the other stuff.
    I'm guessing under 10mm, but still seems a little high?

    A little less than a Ratpad or Everglide

    Sweeeet

    What are the odds, i'm in the middle of doing my own home made mouse pad too.

    Pretty much the same idea but sandwiching a peice of aluminum in the middle instead of a picture. Oh, and im also using plexi instead of glass (glass and i have an ongoing feud with each other, dont ask :D ).

    Anyway, stunning mod as usual plus i think the red LED's looks good with that picture.

    oh... my.... god! that's got to be the coolest looking mouse pad ever! (hah, the only thing it's lacking is an LCD!)

    anyway, does it work with optical mice?
