Updated Fun stuff. I have moved to Noodlers Ghost ink only as it works really well for general purposes and 1.4 the cost of the IR, the IR is still an option though much more expensive if we needed it for the application.

Here is Rovio 2.0 back together after 2018s tear down. This has certainly been a long term project.

There are two cameras here, one ceiling facing and  another forward. I do think I will add one pointing down with a focal point at about 2 inches away. The "jewel" on top is a focusing UV led illumination, and there is no forward UV illumination YET, but it is coming, I will 3D print the add on and paint it for match.
