What are LED Demon Eyes? Learn about Lighting


today we are gonna talk about demonize
the heck is a demon a demon eyes for the
wind boys needless to say I am in love
with this huge shout out to fly ride out
so we can control the light and any
color they want we can do bright green
and then we can go back to the red blue
just can’t capture the the quality
without actually seeing this in person
my eyes look like that of a demon
thank you
what’s up boys and girls this is Chris
theraphy and you are watching fly ride
and today we’re gonna talk all about
demonized because like I always say
we’re gonna tell you all about the parts
the techniques and the business of
building custom lights and demon eyes
are the parts and these are the
techniques and that’s the business so
let’s get into it see how I look like a
demon that’s why they call them demon
eyes bro whoa let’s do a strobing demon
demon demon demon demon demon so as you
can tell my eyes look like that of a
demon it’s because I have these cool
little LEDs now check out this one so
these are the color morph demon eyes
that we use a lot on all kinds of
different stuff as you can tell this
one’s got a bracket on it and this other
one does not have a bracket on there and
it’s just gonna depend on if you want to
put them into a projector or if you want
to use them somewhere we’re tight spaces
a little tighter you can do a lot with
these things they’re super versatile and
their ungodly bright I mean they’re just
super super good I think these are three
watt LEDs but in any case the main
decision to be had I made decision to be
had when you’re putting these things
into a projector is how you want the
light to react so for example I am going
to am I gonna do throw a little sleeve
on this thing right now just to protect
it because I’m just thinking inside this
projector here’s a projector every
different projector has a slight
different opening and there’s all kinds
of different ways that you have to
figure this stuff out all right so in
this case if I’m going to mount a demon
eye inside this projector the most
important thing I need to do is I need
to look at the inside and figure out
where is it that I really want this
thing to catch the light so all of that
little shiny surface area in there look
what happens when I put the light to it
starts to glow it catches all of that
light
so if I’m throwing the LED down here
it’s gonna catch the inside differently
then if I’m lighting it from the top
down the other thing it’s gonna do is
it’s gonna have a different effect on
how the light leaves here if I mount
this demon I down at the bottom see how
it looks like it’s at the top even
though it’s down here because the image
gets flipped just like a camera or
whatever and so what happens when you’re
doing this is you can actually see this
up on the roof it’s throwing the light
forward and then this the shape of this
bowl is bending it and it’s shooting it
upward weird so if you’re mounting them
on the top it’s gonna do the exact
opposite it’s gonna have the light come
out and it’s gonna make it look like
it’s on bottom and it’s gonna throw that
light down at the street so two totally
different ways of doing things if you
want to throw the light up then you
mount them on the bottom if you want to
throw the light down the amount on the
top the other thing too is how much does
it catch on that heat or on that the
cut-off shield here so before I had it
mounted inside this is what matters the
most if it’s changing colors and
catching really really well like that
then you’re doing a good job then you’re
demonize where it should be but if
you’re mounting it into a place and
you’re just not getting a super strong
effect you might want to consider
mounting it somewhere else so this is
gonna be very directional based on where
I put that demon eye that’s the whole
reason that there’s this bracket because
there’s certain projectors out there
like the m h1 is a good example of this
this is made for that projector so all
you have to do is take a couple screws
out put this bracket into place tighten
it back up and now you’ve got a demon
eye inside your projector and you aren’t
even good like you just took a couple
screws out put them back in no thought
no skill level needed I mean if you
really want to get the most out of it
it’s just like everything else with
projectors you got to Nate you got to
just put the time in and figure out
where is the best place to mount
those demonize otherwise you’re just
gonna have kind of like a hmm whatever
just kind of a light glow sometimes you
get inconsistency where there’s stuff
that’s blocking the actual LED so it
doesn’t do much good if there’s an LED
in there and something’s blocking it
like my finger right and so you kind of
get the idea there’s a lot that can go
wrong with these but there’s just such a
cool effect of having these glowing eyes
inside the projector and it’s not this
very forced product that looks like it’s
in there you basically have no idea that
setup has demon eyes unless they’re on
so it’s a very cool kind of sleeper mod
something cool that you can leave on in
the background like if your cars in a
parking lot super low power consumption
so you can just leave them on just let
them rock for a while and people walking
past your car will freak out
especially here’s my little trick
especially if you have those things
really dialed in and mount it in a cool
way
in the bottom and then someone’s walking
past your car
Huck them right in the eyeball and am
like the glare just blasts you right in
the face and the result is that you’re
getting a lot more attention on your
project see that getting me I could feel
it Oh God yeah that’s what you want to
do that’s perfect so again not all demon
eyes are created equal
you’ve got kinds that have one little
LED on there like this guy
focus you have some with this little
chip on there like that this is actually
our gbw so for some reason somebody
thought it would be really cool to put
white but what happens when you have a
white projector it just looks like a
projector so I don’t really get that but
the green red blue the color-changing
stuff I love that on this particular
type it’s just got one little dot so I
can focus it I can use this to change
the fiber-optic tubes inside of
different lights but there’s also
different types of projectors that will
maybe work better with other demonised
so there’s at least three or four
different companies that we carry the
demonize a couple of them have these
little single LED 3 watt chips other
ones have a bunch of different little
individual single colored LEDs on there
and then there’s I don’t know there’s
just always changing technology when it
comes to this stuff so don’t think that
because you have one type and your buddy
has another that yours are better or is
you’re better it comes down to skill
level and how you actually mount them
that matters way more than the actual
part that you start with so I just say
like the only thing you want to be
careful of is really cheap stuff that’s
just gonna disconnect there’s a lot of
stuff going on in this one little part
so if the drivers are bad totally wasted
effort if the LEDs go bad totally wasted
effort so you want to make sure that you
get good quality parts that’s all that
we carry on fly read comm so you’re
always safe with any of the options that
we have there and any of them that I try
out and I don’t like like I’ll get rid
of a product on the site just because if
I wouldn’t use it I want to sell it I
don’t care if it makes me money if it’s
just gonna cause problems like BIC over
that anyway if you do demonize and you
spend your time then it can be a super
super cool project and and the cool
thing is they’re cheap they’re damn
cheap so you don’t have to have the cool
hundred dollar Bluetooth controller but
you can because it’s a hundred bucks
to control stuff with your phone and
multiple functions you’re like
like lighting MacGyver do you know who
my guy ever is damn you guys might not
know anyway back on topic demon eyes are
dope I like them I used to not want to
do them because I knew that as soon as I
started messing around with those things
that people would ask more and more and
I didn’t like to do them and the reason
was the tech wasn’t there yet I’m like
old for lighting I’ve been doing this
stuff forever so when I used to do these
things I had to make everything from
scratch I used to have to actually
modify angel eyes in a lot of cases I
would take an angel eye that did
multicolor and I had like a bunch of
chips around a circle and there’s big
ugly spaces between them kinda like this
see this little strip right there
it’s got a bunch of individual color
changing LEDs on it but there’s big gaps
so back in the day I used to take those
rings and now chopped little sections of
them because I knew that if I chopped it
into four equal sections and I looked at
the way the circuit board was I could
turn that into four individual demon
eyes and their work color-changing demon
eyes there weren’t these little things
like that and those rings were expensive
so if I messed up I just shot myself in
the foot but now it’s all different you
don’t have to actually be MacGyver
like you are you know I’m saying who
didn’t want you don’t know MacGyver’s

  1. Can you PLEEASE make a video about how do you connect all peaces inside the brz tail lights to make it strong as… you know πŸ˜›

  2. How about new idea and please answer me!!!! How about strobing SOLID! circles around demon eyes! This is a DAMN BIG idea i think! Give it a try PLEASE

  3. Question?!?!?
    Do you recommend an inline fuse with all of demon eyes for custom headlights? Does it help with the demon eyes rgb lasting? etc?
    My demon eyes have recently stop working for 1 color and one headlight is purple and other blue? Have you ran into that issue? More than likely the rgb is going bad?

  4. how do these work with an older car? 87 Monte Carlo LS. Love the channel. i really want to bring my lights to this level of awesome

  5. Love the videos please make more . I’ve watched them all a few times. I’ve been disassembling and adding leds to headlights for quite a few years now too. Need to divert some work or shop help who know? I’m your guy [email protected]

  6. Oh man you r amazing!!! I just wanna ask u about any idea to customize e39 tail lights like if u have a pic or video for sequential lights or any nice work like yours, thx!!
