The Infinity Box

I present to you, the Infinity Box:


This one is not quite finished yet but I got a little excited and wanted to share.

It’s a 3 inch acrylic box made of one way mirrors. When the lights are out it looks like this:

There are 3 glass spheres and a piece of aquarium rock that are lit from underneath by LED’s, which is just enough light to give it a dusk sort of feel when it’s on.

There is also a star field etched into the top mirror so when you look from underneath it’s like looking at the stars.

For a deeper dive and a look at the model inside, take a look at this short video:

How did you settle on the spheres and aquarium rock? Did you try it with different objects? This is very fun to look at.

I was basing it slightly off of a video game I play called No Man’s Sky. Those are elements from the various planets in the game (Gravatino Balls and DiHydrogen) Both have the advantage of being semi-transparent which makes for a nice effect. The final wooden frame will include other elements from the game.

I got that vibe… A favorite VR game when I have time for such things. What happens when you touch one of the gravitino balls? :flushed:

Adorable tiny laser-cut sentinels come after you, of course.

I was figuring an infinity box held five glowing stones, and could be dangerous when snapped shut, but this vibe is pretty awesome, too.
