DIY Tesseract's Cube

The Tesseract (also called the Cosmic Cube) is a crystalline cube-shaped containment vessel for an Infinity Stone possessing unlimited energy.

The Tesseract is one of the most powerful artifacts in the universe. It holds great power that is almost unlimited. The Tesseract can open rifts through space. The Tesseract can also show visions of the future, which may or may not come true. The people who have seen this power are the Red Skull, Eric Selvig, and Hawkeye, when the latter two were under the control of the Chitauri scepter.

It cannot be held by mortal hands. Anyone who does so will be disintegrated, their remains sent to another world, as evidenced with what happened to Red Skull.

The day I saw " Avengers : Initiative " I became fan of Tesseract's Cube. So I decided to make my own Tesseract's cube .

Below is one of Simplest and Cheapest method to make one .

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Supplies

The following things are required :-

  • Cardboard
  • A Transparent Plastic Sheet ( I got it from a plastic folder )
  • Colourful Paper
  • A Blue LED Bulb
  • Wires
  • A Pair of Scissors
  • Battery
  • A Small Switch
  • Pen
  • Scale
  • Bubble Wrap (after using a lot of materials I found that bubble wrap gives the best effect)

Step 2: Cutting

Cut the Cardboard in the form of a Rectangle with four equal parts.

Step 3: Solder the LED

Solder the wire and the LED.

Step 4: Making the Centre Part

Crush the Bubble Wrap into a ball and put the LED in the centre of it and tape it .

Step 5: Making the Base

Fold the Cardboard to make the Base and then Stick the Edges.

Step 6: Making the Cube

Draw lines on the Plastic Sheet in the manner as shown above.

Step 7: Cut and Stick

Cut and stick the edges of the Sheet to form an open Cube.

Step 8: Assemble

Now insert the open Cube in the Cardboard and then put the bubble wrap (with LED inside it) inside the cube.

Step 9: Finalising

Glue the whole thing together then complete the circuit by attaching a Battery and a Switch and cover the cardboard with paper.

Step 10: Turn It on

Turn it on . In day light it looks normal but the real magic begins when lights are turned off !!

    Did you not use a resistor to limit the current in the LED? Without one it will quickly burn out. A blue LED will typically have a forward voltage of 3-3.4V and current rating of 30mA. You would need 190ohms of resistance to safely operate the LED and the closest normal resistor to that is 220ohms. They are pennies, and will save you buying more LEDs when this one burns out. Nice looking project though!

    Note my calculation is based on a 9V battery

    Yes, I totally agree with you that when this kind of LED is directly attached to a 9V battery it would burn . So to avoid it you can use either a resistance or you can use a LONG WIRE for making the connection as the internal resistance of the wire would pay up for that. So long wire would help you as well as can avoid the calculation part too !!

    Thank You .
