Custom Ubese helmet upgrade

After considerable thought, I decided the upper scanner lights on the Ubese helmet was to heavy and awkward. So I decided to remake it in a smaller and lighter package. I am also adding a feature I wanted before but it was too large to fit. If it works I will let you know in the next update. In the first pic is the new scanner module with the smoke lens in place, you can see the LEDs because of the background light.

In this pic, you can better see the LEDs, the small rectangular ones are the green scan lights, the large clear ones at the ends are IR (INFRARED) LEDs. The large black disk in the middle is a IR cam and will be connected to a display in the helmet. More pics in the next update.
