Intro: Foil Hat/Signal Receiver, No Longer Just for Crazy Hobos!
Have you ever wanted to receive signals from aliens, block out government mind control waves, or just have a cool foil hat? If you answered yes to any of the above questions then this instructable is for you!
Note* Foil hats are not recommended for hot days, please do not fry your brains, if you do blame Zane.*
Step 1: Materials
First you will need to gather the following supplies: Aluminum foil, scissors, a measuring tape(optional) and tape i used scotch but any kind will do!
Step 2: Head Sizes
If you are using a measuring tape simply wrap it around your head and tighten it, then see how big your head is, mine was about 23". If you are not using a measuring tape simply take the foil and wrap it around your head then cut off the amount that provides a snug fit!
Step 3: Types of Hats
Now figure out what type of hat you want, do you want the antennae hat which can be used on a chilly night to pick up alien signals, or the kind of hat used for blocking out alien signals and government propaganda?
Step 4: Making the Hat
Now that you have selected which kind of hat you would like simply take the foil sheet you cut out earlier, the one with the snug fit (the snug fit is crucial), then wrap it around your head so that it forms to your heads basic shape, then tape the foil together. If you are making the antennae kind of hat you will need to leave enough foil sticking above the top of your head to make an antennae, to make the antennae simply take the foil sticking above the top of your head and crunch it into a spike. If you are making the deflecting type of hat do the same thing only when you have your spike cut it off and flatten the area where the spike was.
Step 5: Usages
Here are the ways the hats work.
Step 6: See?
Now you know how easy it is to block government mind control or receive alien signals and you now know why crazy hobos in foil hats have so much fun!
