Simple Arc Reactor the Second





Introduction: Simple Arc Reactor the Second

My principil is the easier the better. this is my second attempt at an arc reactor. its a little bulgier, but it looks a whole lot better. this design also uses a dot-it light, because i don't know how to do electronics. so have fun makin it and please rate and comment. i want feedback!!!!!:)

Step 1: Materials

Ok Gather your materials:

Poland springs bottle( i used eco shaped)
Duct tape(dark color)
Scotch tape( not shown)
Dot-it light( $9.00 at home depot)
scissors or knife

Step 2: Taking Shape

Have you ever looked at the bottom of a poland springs water bottle? it looks like an arc reactor. so thats what i decided to make version 2 out of. simple and fast. you could probably even make this at school or in the office! take your bottle and cut the end off. cut it pretty close to the end like shown.

Step 3: Taking Shape.

take you duct tape and cut off a little more than an inch. cut Strips slightly bigger than the indents on the bottle. put them in the indents and make sure they go onto the other side. they need to be 2 layers or they will be see through.

Step 4: Attaching the Light

cut off two pieces of scotch tape and put one on each side. center it on the dot-it light and tape it.

Step 5: Finally Done

you could now attach a string as a necklace and where it. or however you want to attach it
