Introduction: Remote Firework Igniter
So it's New Years eve again, this year let 2013 go out with a bang with help from the Remote firework igniter!
Step 1: What You Will Need
For this project you will need:
1.Hot glue gun
2.1 ohm resistors (NOT KILO OHM)
3.Matches (at least 1 per resistor)
6.Fireworks or something ignitable (if you want you can light a candle)
Step 2: Small Test
Step 3: The Igniter
For the igniter we will connect a resistor to a match so that the groove of the resitor fits onto the tip of the match. We then hot glue the contraption together. They should now all look like below.
Step 4: Battery Work
We will know make a 12v battery out of 2 6v batteries. This is easy, just connect a piece of wire onto the minus pole on one battery and on the plus on the other.
Step 5: Second Test
Step 6: Trying the Whole Thing Out
Nice, you made it know lets try the whole thing out on a Sparkler.
Sadly my camera didn't save this as a video but as a photo. Here it is anyway.
My next steps would be to :
Make it arduino compatible and make it able to be triggered by a smartphone/computer
Make a large controller box (like the ones on myth busters .etc)
HAPPY NEW YEAR
We have a be nice policy.
Please be positive and constructive.
