I may have taken your bait if you had told me that you were using CREE LEDs but...
So that we turn back to topic of technology; here are some factoids about CREE:
Cree was formed/incorporated in 1987 by researchers from North Carolina State University. Cree went public on February 9, 1993 at a split-adjusted price of about $1.03. They have over 260 seminal patents and their stock is currently trading at around $55.
I don't want to get suckered into this project of yours. You already got me thinking what would happen if you took a cube with mirrors on all inside walls and put a single omni directional LED in the center but then I remembered about that new trick question on twitter: It was something about what if a tree fell in the forest and nobody was there to hear it... It turned out that my answer was greater than 144 characters, so they banned me for life...
The depth of LEDs only seems to extend out to be about 12 layers. I wonder what would be the affect of using some higher quality optical-grade mirrors that may be able to appropriate as remnants from the likes of ThorLabs, et al! The other question is whether there would be any benefits to putting mirrors on all 4 sides; with drilled holes which allow the LEDs to be affixed to the back side of the mirrors and piercing thru the perforations. Or, instead, using one-way (partial) mirrors instead of drilled mirrors on the 4 sides of the cube and then jacking up the lumens on the LEDs! Maybe even putting one of those tiny action cameras (e.g. GoPro) on the inside of the cube (or via a prism) would provide more depth.
