Iron Man FacePlate and Arc Reactor Framed with light.
Step 1: Iron Man: Arc Reactor + Face Plate + Led Frame Stand
I've seen many in many websites, in Instructables there are a lot of great projects well documented. So I wanted mine and wanted it ... personal (non identical to others)...even if I'm of course inspired by all the projects I've seen here (and there)...
THE ARC REACTOR:
I always saved junk parts from old pc's, hard drives and other electronics.
here the construction of the arc needed:
- a VCR motor
- 8 HDD motor contactors
- 8 golden stripes (connecting the hard drive reading head)
- a clear acrylic ring (laser cut)
the all was assembled with hot or rapid glue.
THE FACE PLATE:
see here: https://www.instructables.com/id/Iron-Man-Gauntlet-Desk-Lamp/
using a wooden frame (peinted in black)
+ a mouvement detecting led lamp.
