Introduction: Iron Man Arc Reactor

Here I will show you how to make an awesome Iron Man arc reactor prop.

You'll Need:

-7 White LEDs
-4 Resistors
-White candle wax
-Two Speakers
-A motor from a VCR player
-A small piece of window screen
-9v Battery


-Soldering gun
-Something to melt the wax in
-Scissors (to cut the screen)

Step 1: The Base

Take your motor apart and drill seven holes in the bottom big enough to fit the LEDs in

Step 2: The Speakers

You'll only need this part of the speakers, Then insert you speaker frames into the half of the motor. After that, melt some wax and pour it into the gaps.

Step 3: Inserting the Screen

This is what you should have by now.  You can now glue the screen piece on the top of the first frame.

Step 4: The LEDs

Now place a LED in every hole and solder together ( I used two LEDs per Resistor)

Step 5: Finsished Pictures

Here's in the light. And the picture in the dark is actually a lot brighter but i had to make it darker so you could see it (It was really Blury)
