I'm hoping someone here can find a place to order something to help me out.

The LEDs on the Playstation Eye are like two little lasers piercing my retina any time I play a Move game. I don't leave the Eye plugged in because the blue LED is always on.

I'm hoping to find some sort of sticker material to place over the LEDs. It'd have to be at least partly translucent, because I still want to know when the camera turns on, but dark enough to cut 50 to 75% of the light (something between an ND2 or NS4 in photography terms).

The face of the camera isn't that big, so something the size of a hole punch would be perfect. Or a sheet of the sticker material from which I can punch out a hole.

Any ideas?

Go to an optical place where they dilate your eyes and pick up a pair of those cheap dark glasses. Use multiple thicknesses to increase darkness.

I just put some black duct tape over the bright green LED on the baby monitor. The LED is bright enough to get through it, but it's not too bright.

Ugly, but hey, who cares?

I really want it in sticker form so I don't have to make a mess with glue. But I'll do something like that if I can't find it with adhesive already attached.

This is something everyone in my living room, looking toward the TV, will see. So I'm trying to keep the ugliness factor down.

Do want. For several garish blue LED's around the house.

I used double-sided tape to affix a quarter to the center (OK or select) button on a DTV R15 DVR. A little blue glow still comes out around the edges. It's in the bedroom so I don't care too much how it looks. My retinas thanked me. It was a touching moment.

Is there such a thing as 2 sided transparent tape?
