Sleep Mask LED Glasses

As mentioned in my last post, I’ve been enjoying the full blackout of a sleep mask with the guts from a pair of MindPlace RGB glasses slipped inside.

I cannot overstate the improvement in brilliance, particularly of blues and greens, that comes with eliminating ambient light.

First you’ll need to remove the visor and LED assembly from your glasses. A small Philips type screwdriver and a soldering iron will be needed. Remove the two screws from the cable entry and the one from the bridge of the nose. The visor clips out from the frame.

Take careful note of how the wires are connected to their solder pads, then detach so that you can pass the wire out of the hole in the frame. Resolder the cable to the visor assembly.

I’ve covered mine in tape to bulk it up, take off the sharp edges and provide good cable relief.

Take your sleep mask and make a vertical slit near one end – far enough along so that the visor slips in with a pocket left to hold it in place.

With the LED visor in place, feel around for the LED covers and carefully cut through just the inner dark layer of material.

Voila! Most glasses should be suitable candidates for such treatment, and I’m sure a perfectly decent job could be done with bare LEDs.

Cheers,
Craig

    It’s hard to come by educated people about this subject, but you seem like you know what you’re talking about!

    It’s often reported that the average adult needs about nine hours of sleep, but many studies and people dispute this; reports range from four hours to ten hours a night. Other factors that can cause trouble falling asleep are smoking and taking anything with caffeine before going to bed. Instead establish a consistent bedtime routine and leaving them to fall asleep on their own.
