Resin cast into mahogany using liquid crystal pattern

My good friend Oliver Coles has used my liquid crystal photography to create this coffee table surface. Using the image as a template with a CNC milling machine, he etched the pattern into mahogany and filled it with resin. The structure is back-lit with 140 addressable LEDs for a colourful light up effect. The first image is a photograph of the original liquid crystal; for more liquid crystal images like this, take a look at the liquid crystal photography page here! 

Many thanks to Oli for using my photography.  Take a moment to check out his website and other projects!

Free liquid crystal textures for 3D worlds

I have made available my entire collection of liquid crystal photos for anyone to use in their own projects.  The collection can be found here!  A friend Oliver Coles has already used them to create unique furniture designs. The most beautiful liquid crystal images are showcased over on the liquid crystal page.  Below are some screenshots and a video demo of their use in the roller-a-ball scene in Unity3D (you can build this game yourself in a few short hours by following the Unity's tutorial here).
