Maker Faire. I couldn't go only with one Cyborg Arm. Nah! I had to go with TWO FREAKING HEAVY CYBORG ARMS!

So, I made the second one. It's like the first one, just changing the pincers for some kind of gattling gun, that spins at high velocity and has a red led, giving the "FIRE" effect.

This Cyborg Arm has two problems:

1. Too heavy. You need the fitness of a sexy Latino gardener for wearing it for a long time. And it's heavier than the first one, so you feel like Hellboy.
2. It has the power of turning its bearer into an evil person. Look at our sweet Carley Jacobson (pictures). Now she feels the hunger for power and mass destruction!

But, still, you can make it for a cosplay, or just in case you want to delight yourself with images of your future robotic empire.

Step 1: Materials and stuff

I used the following stuff:

All the plastic trash I could get
Corner braces inside L (2in. x 5/8in.)
Corner braces inside L (1in. x 1/2in.)
1 9V battery clip
1 9V battery
1 big and red LED
2 220 ohm resistors
1 damaged small flashlight
1 big Thermos
1 damaged tower fan
1 damaged plastic table set for babies (I used the front support)
1 big electric toy car (I needed the motor, the gearbox and the wheel)
Something with a handle (like a toy iron)
1 switch
1 joystick
1 rectangular keyboard
8 PVC plugs (or any other cylindrical pieces)
black plastic junk pieces
Nuts, screws and bolts
Iron washers
Superglue (cyanoacrylate)
Cellulose sponges


Dremel Rotary Tool
Power drill
Wire cutters
Screwdriver kit
Soldering Iron

And don't forget:

1. If you don't have it, replace it!
2. Use protective equipment (dust mask and goggles)
3. Beware of drilled and soldered hot surfaces
4. Work in a good ventilated area.
5. Always have junk in stock.
6. Have fun.
<p>Maybe you could cut peces out of the large solid parts to give it a cool openwork feeling and at the same time, make it lighter. </p>
<p>Brutal! original y resuelto con ingenio, por lo del peso hay que <br>recordar que en una pelicula generalmente se tienen varios tipos de <br>&quot;props&quot; del mismo .... este ser&iacute;a el modelo &quot;hero&quot; para acercamientos y <br>primeros planos porque es el que se ve mejor en c&aacute;mara ...</p>
Muchas gracias Enriqueto! De d&oacute;nde eres?
It's so awesome so going to make it
Thanks Patbking!
Dude, I have to hand it to you(heheheh, hand) that is one sweet arm. I'd love to make it into a steam punk arm!
Now you only could make Cyborg Legs (you finished the arms) <br>;-)
LOL! Yes, I will try legs for the next time :-)
Could you make me one and send it to me
I can make and sell you one, but you have to pay the shipment.
I think you should make cyborg upper arms with missiles and a laser on the other
Make is 'shoot' soap bubbles! <br>
Not a bad idea!
Mwahahahaha! <br>I'd vote, if there was a Competition, anyway, got Blogged: <br>http://faz-voce-mesmo.blogspot.pt/2013/08/pololu-e-maestro-e-um-braco-ciborg-e.html
Who's the Cyber Girl? She is Cyberlicious! <br>Apologies if she is your Wife or Girlfriend but lucky you :O) <br>My comments are intended as a compliment.
She's the fantastic and beautiful Carley Jacobson, from Instructables.com!
awesome post. great build, and this is just the way things should be posted on Instructables. I give you mad props. cant wait to build on myself.
Thanks Nissan0712!! :-)
I don't believe in showing my age on the inter-web
Also you should make cyborg spying camera built into the suit
Yes sir, for the next time.
Just kidding I'm making secret agent stuff though
I'm going to make a alliance to destroy you once and for all
Now that you have two cyborg arms... how about Cyborg legs!! Your stuff is always so amazing!! You have quite an eye for seeing such potential in ordinary objects, another great instructable!!
Thanks BigMrTree!! And you are absolutely right, I have to make cyborg legs! :-)
It doesn't actually shoot:(
But now you know. And knowing is half of the battle! :-)
Does it shoot?
Please read my instructable and you will find out. Thanks! :-)
All your stuff is freakin cool! Have you tried to make many of your guns shoot?
Thanks! My 3D printed tank launches a missile, and one of my next instructables will be a 3D printed action figure with missiles. Maybe one day, I will make a cyborg arm that launches missiles.
Sorry, any
Very very awesome model weapons ! <br>I REALLY like your ideas man <br> <br>Take care ... Mohammad <br>
I love how you turn such ordinary items into something so awesome.
Thanks ChrysN!!! :-)
I love how you upcycle all kinds of things for your projects! Very ingenious as always, Mario! :)
Thanks Linda! :-)
Great. Looking at it, I would never have guessed what you made it out of without this instructable.
Thanks gcanders!
These are awesome! Who wouldn't want cyborg arms?
Thanks Ohmdaddy! I love cyborg arms!
