Step 5: The end result

I have been noticing that simply wearing the Thinking Hat can make a big difference, but when I want to do some really deep thinking, all I have to do is flip the little toggle switch on the front of the helmet and, WHAM, the thinking really gets DEEP quickly!

If you've ever thought, "Gee, I wish I had a Thinking Hat," I hope this little Instructable will inspire you to make one.  Have fun!
<p>You should try the pro version 20.00006 it has a multitude of vacuum tubes and empty spools of plumbers tape. </p>
<p>or empty solder spools</p>
Cool, and Is the book your reading upside down?
Yes, it is indeed upside down. It's because of the Thinking Cap, you know.....
Yeah, I figured that out.
I really like the hat, but I REALLY like the photo.
You could adapt a TDCS kit to overclock your brain and make it a real thinking hat! ;)
This made me lol and kinda reminded me of portal for some reason. Now you're thinking with hardhats.
The unknown lamp part is called a harp.<br>
Here is a Demotivation from me to you :) <br><br>http://www.demotivation.us/thinking-cap-1250959.html<br><br>I love this instructable, by the way.
Ha! Thanks for the comment, and thanks for the link to the demotivation!!
This is very well thought.<br>As a matter of fact as it was conceived BEFORE you built this cap I think that you don't actually need it and you should give it to someone who's thinking abilities want such a boost : be kind to your neighbor ! &hellip;
Well............... Actually, I didn't think about building it until I taped the vacuum tube to my head and felt its energy filling the great void that exists between my two ears. Then a voice spoke to me saying, &quot;Must get old hard hat, empty wire spool, LED, and lamp part 'thingy' and assemble into a Thinking Hat!&quot; I've often wondered if the voices only speak to me....... Enjoyed your comment!
Aaaah ! That explains&hellip;<br>So make a good use of it. You already did by showing how useful it is.<br>Guess I'll end up making my own ; French style of course, I don't want my fellow countrymen see my think with an accent (but then again !!&hellip;&agrave;.<br>Enjoy your week end as much as I enjoyed your instructable ! &hellip;
coooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.......... <br>3 years later <br>.....oooooooooooooooooooooooolllll
Silly and wonderful :D
Wonderful, yes, but silly?!?! I mean we're talking about a real, carefully designed and tested Thinking Hat. When it come to thinking, I need all the help I can get! Thanks for your comment!
Brilliant - add a cooling fan and trolls the world over will flock to your door.
The line of trolls at my door is already so long, they're complaining about the long wait time! Thanks for your comment!
Why not make the heater glow? That would have been this much more awesome.
I would have liked to make the actual heater glow, but alas this old tube's heater would not cooperate. Thanks.
