this is my first instructable. This time i brought to you a simple cyber mask with led effects.
it has made in 5 hours aprox.
be the coolest cyber in de dark rave party!
this mask was created for my brother; Yes, we are twins, as you can see in the last photo.
so enough talk, let's see the steps.
(sorry my english, but i am from Chile)
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Materials
What do we need?
- 1 protective breath mask
- a piece of breadboard of 3x3 cm aprox.
- 1 NE555 IC
- 1 1uf Cpacitor
- 1 1K resistor
- 1 210K resistor
- 1 1.8K resistor
- Blue Leds (high bright)
- 1 9V battery & Holder
- dual marked cable (to identify positive from negative)
Step 2: First Step, the Schematic.
This is the schematic of the project,
it has two blue leds conected directly, so they bright always (this will be connected to both sides of mask, under the inner air conduct.
the third led is connected to the 555 IC, plugged as an astable oscilator, so this make posible this led to blink.
each led, has a 280 ohm resistor to prevent it to be burned by 9V battery.
Try changing the values of R2 and C1 to make it blink faster or lower.
Step 3: Putting the Breadboard Inside Mask.
Once you are ready with the breadboard, its time to fit it inside the mask.
i made two holes in the breadboard and the mask for screws. So it gets hardly to drop out from the mask while your dancing. or running. who knows.
The battery holder goes inside the mask. There are a little room in the lowest part of the mask, so the battery will lay there.
the two direct leds are in the sides of mask.
once you'r ready it's time for details.
I found this old disfunctional keyboard, and stole this plastic layout from him. it is good for visual effects.
I cut a circle, so it will close the main filter of the mask, where the blinking led is. it works great, as it has some traslucent effect.
the rest, i let it to you imagination.
try different details.
i hope it has liked you all.
