Diffusers are a small, but essential addition to your microlight accessory collection. Originally created to add a unique shape to each light and prevent the LED bulbs from poking holes through the gloves, most glovers are reluctant to throw a show without diffusers. Diffusers come in several different shapes, sizes and even colors that all modify your glove light trails in different ways.
Dome - Dome diffusers magnify the LED’s to look like mini gumballs on your fingers. The swollen effect is a glover’s favorite, and the trails created by the Dome Diffusers will produce a large scale version of your normal light show and make your trails more circular. These are by far the most popular diffuser style.
Popcorn - Popcorn Diffusers direct the light into 6 dome-shaped chambers, giving your diffuser a “popcorn” shape while also creating a 3D trail. The colors are dispersed throughout the diffuser, which allows the LED to employ a shimmering Disco Ball effect. The bottom two heads of the diffuser will rest securely on the tip of the finger, roughly the same size as Domes.
Cube - Cube Diffusers create a square filled trail and look a bit like building blocks. Perfect for glovers who love to use “dialing” in their shows and other small, technical moves to give your show a Tetris-like block feel. At first, cubes may feel clunky as they are one of the largest diffusers, but with practice, the transition becomes seamless. [link]
Shield - Shield Diffusers allow the light to be seen from all angles of your finger during lights shows because it wraps around the pad of your finger. Since they are 3 times bigger than standard diffusers, making it our largest one, the light is directed in more directions, which creates a larger trail than any other diffuser. The Shield Diffuser also features a soft gel space to a more comfortable ergonomic fit despite its size. [link]
Standard Diffusers - These come in 3 variations: Open, Closed and Premium. You will receive one of these diffusers pre-installed on every glove set purchase. These are our smallest diffusers which provide a basic, minimal amount of diffusion to improve the presentation of the LED. We recommend upgrading to one of the above options for a more unique show!
Clear - Clear diffusers are the most common diffuser and produce slightly brighter trails. The uninhibited light adds a crystal-like element to your glove set.
Color - Colored Diffusers change the hue of your trails. The change in color is determined by the programmed colors of the LED and the speed of the glover’s movement.
