The story begins with Shine.

When we got misfit shine the first time, we are shocked to see the 1,560 laser-drilled holes on the surface to allow the light from the LEDs through but still keep the water out.

BTW, this is not a new invented process, if you look at your front of mac pro, you will find the breathing led with micro holes. This is often used on high-end products:

  • the holes are barely seem by eyes
  • lights through, but water out

We tries to make our own micro holes logo

We find the suppliers and conclude the basic facts for design

  • a thin layer of coating after laser drilling for dustproof
  • a thickness of 0.2mm is preferred
  • in theory all metal can be drilled, aluminium is preferred since its machinability
  • aperture: 0.01mm
  • hole distance: 0.15mm
  • 100- 150 holes/mins

Here’s how we designed our classic seeed flower
