Or diffusion optics for LED strips?

I had an idea for a neat project using LED Fluorescent (external link) but the light is too focused and I don't have the space needed to diffuse it. Perhaps this is a stupid question but are there optics available for the led ceiling lights (external link)? Alternatively, are there alternative ways of diffusing the led strip (external link) in a short space? They're going into frosted tubes, so it doesn't matter what it looks like.

Here's a link - watch the whole thing or just skip to 5:45.

If you want a material that can act as a diffuser and stand up to a little heat; although it will eat some light, try this.

Home depot has a 2' x 2' ceiling LED panels, priced at $149. Their color temp is around 4800K (I dont remember exactly, but its printed on the box). They seem to give out soft diffused light and come with a built on diffusion plastic panel, like ceiling lights usually do.

Hope this helps.
