DIY Tazer/Stun Glove *With Altoids Case

About: I got interested in electronics at 5. I would buy cheap toys and when they broke open them and study the circuit and saved it.[ I dont know why]. I would then go on to studying science like stuff for about 7...

Intro: DIY Tazer/Stun Glove *With Altoids Case

Hello and welcome to a a Kante Industry presentation. 
This is my first actually instructable and i decided to make a electric stun / taser glove.
This glove is a prototype and well eventually have extreme stealth capabilities.
The shock from this voltage is high and deadly and this is mean't to be a self
defense weapon only. The glove is charge by a capacitor bank of 4, traveling up
3ft of wire into your glove.
I am not responsible for any accidents or dangers that occur under this product, for this is mean't only for
educational purposes and not offensive. 

Video of the Glove in action.


Here is just a brief list of the stuff you shall need.

Altoids Case
4.5v Battery Case with 3 batteries
2 small metal plates
Any kind of insulated gloves
Wire equivalent to your torso up
3-4 capacitors
Camera Circuit
Post it or similar insulator 

Soldering Iron 
Glue Gun
sparker (something to discharge the capacitors)

Step 2: Schematic

This is the design process that I came up with. 

Step 3: Solder the Capacitors

In order for me to solder the capacitors all I did was first
twist on the wires to the leads then I solder them in one by one. 
Make sure to have half an inch off the side connecting to
the camera and more than an inch for the side leaving the 
altoids can. 

Step 4: Connect to Circuit

Okay now take your camera circuit and replace the capacitor the big round black thing (lol) with the new capacitor bank. 
Making sure that the leads of the capacitor bank corresponds with that on the circuit. 
Next flip over the circuit and remove the round metal switch in the middle. This is used to turn flash on. 
We will peel the metal from the tape and flip it then place back over its spot. This now makes the circuit closed so that you don't have to
start it yourself.  Finally place the piece of insulator on the bottom and sides of the altoids case. 

Step 5: Final Setup

Okay now we will cut a hole through the lid of the case so that the 1in end of the capacitor bank fits through it. Everything should be in the case at this point.  Next we will solder on the extra wires to extend from the torso to the gloves. Heat shrink or tape up the connections for durability. Finall solder on the metal plates to the free end of the extra wire. After this point you have to glue gun the solder side of the plate on to the desirable finger tips. Insulate with tape is recommended. 

Step 6: Testing and Future

Check out the video at the beginning and learn how to easily start it up. I now use 4.5volts in stead of the single AAA battery to speed up and increase the charge. 

I later plan on using foil tips or making my right hand neg and my left a whole positive glove. 
I also plan on making it smaller and more powerful from my coil gun
ideas.  Peace my friends and leave comments.

    you are risking injury wiring that voltage level to those gloves. Neither the gloves nor the wire insulation are rated for the voltage output.

    pardon my ignorance, but the wires you're using to connect the circuit to the glove are made of copper, yes? If not, is copper a fair substitute? Thank you in advance. :-)

    BTW, what would a prototype with 2 capacitors from disposable Kodak cameras do to an offender?

    I asked my electronics teacher to do this as a project, I was politely declined :) Thanks for your instructable will be trying this one soon!

    Ask if you can do it if you can somehow recreate it as a bug zapper system. Also you can always do it on your own.

    Excellent tutorial! Very simple explanation. Quick question - what value of capacitors did you use?

    I used the ones found in disposable cameras, they usually have a rating of about 330v and like 120uf

    in the pictures on first step in required items are given where u tagged u need 3 of this and wat is post it and is there anything which can be used instead of altoid

    those are called capacitors and its kinda of obvious that your just a kid don't try to build this because you don't know what a post-it is and you are showing that you have very little electronic knowledge. Your going to hurt yourself making this don't do it.,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_cp.r_qf.,cf.osb&biw=1366&bih=643&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=isch&source=og&sa=N&tab=wi&ei=AaX4T92gB-Tx0gHqqqjuBg

    Thats a post-it.

    yes sir im in 10th grade and just started studying electricity chapter but i kinda bought all the materials required and am intrested to make it


    6 years ago on Introduction

    Thats great! This is the first time it saw a glove version :)))

    You should also try the battery powered electric fly swatter as your capacitor charger.

    By the way, what capacitor value did you use?

    Well I had 4 capacitors.
    330 x 4= 1,320 v
    120 x 4= 480uf

    I tested on my self and some friends the pain came to moderate.

    Yes it most likely will if you build it correctly and do some minor modifications. However try to avoid danger if possible.

    You got that right i once shocked my self with a different taser and it left burn marks on my skin for at least a week.
