Step 6: Spy Car: Flamethrower

The flamethrower uses a professional DJ light (Martin Mania DC2) that projects simulated flames on the wall.  I wired that up to another 110v circuit that would turn on and off through commands from the controller computer.  It looks pretty cool projected on the garage door, especially with sound effects.

James Bond themed everything, and &quot;The Incredibles&quot; soundtrack playing in the intro video? <br>For shame, sir
<p>One video has the &quot;James Bond&quot; theme, whilist the other has &quot;Mission Impossible.&quot; Where are you getting &quot;The Incredibles&quot; from?</p>
<p>During the Russian voiceover.</p>
<p>It wasn't strictly a James Bond-themed exhibit. We used themes from Mission Impossible, Man from UNCLE, Get Smart, The Avengers (TV series), and Soul Bossa Nova (From Austin Powers), as well as others</p><p>Sure, &quot;The Incredibles&quot; is a superhero movie by nature, but they also drew quite a bit of inspiration from 1960s spy flicks. The soundtrack was readily available and provided great atmospheric background music.</p>
Super! (Makes me want to rig up a race car arcade machine similarly.)
