Introduction: The Tesseract-from the Avengers

Picture of The Tesseract-from the Avengers

Science fiction is in my opinion the most intellectual and creative form of art. This object, known as the tesseract is a source of pure energy in the marvel universe. First appeared in the movie captain america, then the avengers, it is in fact an object of fascination, and having one in your room is damn cool!

If you are a sci-fi fan you should check out this instructable for a step by step guide for building the tesseract.

Step 1: Raw Materials

Picture of Raw Materials

I have made it for using it as a nightlamp. Thats why I've used a 3V adapter instead of a coincell battery.

1.A blue-colored file, I have used a blue-colored office-file used for keeping papers. Make sure its transparent.

2. Synthetic cotton

3. Blue LED

4. Wires

5. Transparent tape

6. A 3V adapter.

Step 2: The Cube

Picture of The Cube

I have made a 8 cm square faced cube. I used a ruler and pencil to draw out the straight lines and then made markings after proper measurements.

After that, I used scissors to cut out the sheet according to the markings.

Use transparent tape to the attach square faces together.

Attach five sqaure faces, leave out the last. We will attach that later.

Step 3: Use of Cotton

Picture of Use of Cotton

Insert synthetic cotton in adequate amount inside the cube. The purpose of the cotton is to spread the intense light coming out from the blue LED.

Step 4: The Last Face

Picture of The Last Face

Make a hole in the last face for passing the wires. Insert a blue LED in such a way that it stays just at the centre of the cube. Attach the face with the rest of the cube with tape.

Step 5: Finishing

Find an appropriate place for keeping you tesseract lamp. Then connect a 3V adapter and light it up.

This is awesome! Now I just have to figure out how to make it into a prop for my Lady Loki cosplay...

maybe have the cord run up your sleeve so you can hold the tesseracts in your hand

Thank you!!

Ah, great! Nice and easy!

Maybe you can find a way to add some transulecent textures on cube's surface (to be more look-alike the original Tesseract), so the led inside can create an even better result! :)

Btw, great project! Congratulations! ;)

Nice and simple - would probably make sense to add a current-limiting resistor
