Here's how to make a deck of cards that will pump out a shocking 330 volts of electricity.  Stuart Edge used it in his "Electric Shock Kissing Prank" to show the ladies how a man can really put the sparks in a kiss.

Step 1: Watch the Video!

WARNING: This electric shocker outputs around 330 volts DC, and delivers a surprising jolt.  Be familiar with dangers associated with electric shocks, minor burns, damage to tissues, and possibility of cardiac arrest.  This project should not be attempted without adult supervision and adequate training.  Misuse, or careless use, of tools or projects may result in serious injury.  Use of this video content is at your own risk.
Of course, one has to be EXTREMELY careful NEVER to apply such &quot;comedy&quot; to anyone with a hidden medical condition, like a cardiac pacemaker, a muscle-spasm-relaxing TENS machine, epilepsy, Tourette's or any other sort of &quot;tic&quot;, plus a veritable raft of other situations which could be severely aggravated by the sudden introduction of what amounts to a small bolt of lightning. <br> <br>Then again, if a medical condition is &quot;hidden&quot;, it's kinda tough to tell who has one and who doesn't, so you're pretty much gambling with your victim's health based upon PURE GUESSWORK, ain't'cha??? <br> <br>My &quot;hidden tic&quot;, for example, takes the following form: <br> <br>Whenever I'm handed something which delivers an unexpected and unnecessary electrical jolt to me, the hand holding it at the time has two instantaneous and automatic reactions: <br> <br>...first, it repeatedly slams the device against the skull of the perpetrator until one or the other of those two offending objects lies shattered in tiny pieces all over the floor. <br> <br>...second, it dials the police and files assault charges.... <br> <br>Nothing I can control, you understand - strictly a medical condition! <br> <br>At least you've included a fairly good warning and disclaimer with your 'ible. <br> <br>I would simply reinforce it a bit by adding: <br> <br>Always be MASSIVELY circumspect with alleged &quot;fun&quot; of this type... and upon whom you inflict it. It can easily lead to unpredictable, and infinitely regrettable, results. <br> <br>Like a hospital stay - or worse - for someone. <br> <br>And jail time - or worse - for someone else.
Wow. Just wow. You must be one of those people who freaks out about every little thing. Let me guess, you hate guns and hope they get banned. I bet you are &quot;related&quot; to &quot;royalty&quot;. What a half baked little imbecile.
<p>Maze - Wrong, on all counts!</p><p>I love a good gag! But, as a broadcast engineer of many decades' experience, I do know a LOT more about electricity than is probably good for me, having found much of it out VERY personally, by having run it through various parts of my own anatomy! (...NOT on purpose, though... usually...) That's why I can pretty safely say, &quot;This ISN'T a 'good' gag, unless you KNOW YOUR TARGET, rather intimately.&quot;</p><p>As for the second: Actually, I own guns and staunchly defend our Second Amendment rights whenever someone starts maundering about &quot;banning&quot; them.</p><p>No idea about the &quot;royalty&quot; thing... never bothered looking. (Supposedly, somehow, tangentially related to the Bush family, &quot;several-hundred-times-removed&quot;, but I don't think that counts.)</p><p>Finally, my dad wore a pacemaker from the age of about 55. He never LOOKED like a guy with a pacemaker, whatever that &quot;looks like&quot;. However, if some &quot;...half baked little imbecile...&quot; had ever played such a &quot;prank&quot; on him, he would never have made it to slighty-past-85....</p><p>Hence, my perfectly reasonable position(s) and caution(s), as outlined in my original post.</p>
Holy crap, I LOVE doing that to people! So much fun. Your response laughter rating us probably a 7/10. Thanks for the laugh!?
LOL! interesting involuntary and totally unconscious reaction!
Can I use 100k instead of the 1m potentiometer
Hey there! I love this project. But I am hoping that someone knows where I could get the 1 ohm potentiometer. It's the only thing i need to finish assembling my project.
So I was making it. Then I drop the diode. Too bad I don't have another camera handy. Still a cool project.
Shocking! But in a good way :D <br>Gone to the Blog: <br>http://faz-voce-mesmo.blogspot.pt/2013/05/mais-um-material-da-shapeways-arduino.html
Hi, you have 6 connections on the diagram for the transformer (yellow circles), as I'll have different access to kit, can you show more clearly what those connections actually connect to? Cheers!

Be careful with the hot glue. High temperature glue guns can heat the glue hot enough to fry some transistors.
The only thing to worry about with hot glue is burning yourself with it. Reflow soldering systems reach temperatures hotter than a glue gun, and transistors can easily and reliably handle it. Although household glue guns rarely approach the thermal maximum of a transistor (TO-92 package), those that do come close would still have a difficult time actually damaging a transistor, especially one that isn't operating. <br> <br>I'm sure that household hot-melt glue would be safe for transistors and associated components (with the possible exception of electrolytic capacitors). I'd stake my 25yrs of electronics engineering on it.
Neat trick :)
Cool, but hurtful. Be careful
