PS3 Eye Camera Infrared Diffuser

Following from the previous post, there is much love for the PS3 Eye Camera. Not only is it USB, super cheap, and sports nice open source software - it can do infrared (IR) video really easily.

So, after testing some lights it was time to make a few diffusers for the favorite model and conduct further testing.

Both the Diffuse 3mm PLA & the Transparent 3mm PLA from Cubicity were used in the testing. There was noticeably more light diffusion in the Diffuse filament - almost too much. The transparent kept it nice and bright. Thicknesses of 1mm, 2mm, and 3mm were used. Same camera settings for each shot.
