Intro: Hand Light (Iron Man Repulsor)
Have you ever wanted to fly like Iron Man? Strength Like Hulk? Agility like Deadpool? Well, you still cant do those yet but, this is another step closer to finishing that Iron Man suit that we all have(you know what Im talking about). I will show you how to make an Iron Man repulsor hand light. This light is pretty bright and looks cool in my opinion. Lets get started!
Step 1: Materials and Tools
- Paracord (not a lot)
- Bright LED strips
- Some Jumper Cables
- 9v Battery Snap
- 9v Battery
- Strong Glue (I used Tacky Glue and it worked fine)
- Paint (optional)
- Any color Paracord
- Scotch Tape (optional)
- Soldering Iron
- Paint Brush For paint (optional)
Step 2: Making Circles
Measure a circle that fits well in the palm of your hand. This will become the center where the lights go. After you have drawn a decent sized circle, cut it out. I went with a 6cm diameter as you can see in the pictures. It mostly depends on the size of your hand. Also, it might look better if you keep the diameter above 4cm.
Step 3: Making Rectangles
OK, just like the other step, we need to cut out a shape. This time, we are cutting out a rectangle. The dimensions don't have to be perfect but need to be close. This is where the 9v battery will be mounted.
Step 4: Painting (optional)
If you want to paint then now is the time. I used black acrylic paint and it came out great. You may use any color you want for this step. If you do not wish to paint, then skip this step.
Step 5: Its All Coming Together
Once you have let the paint dry (if you painted) glue a piece of paracord that is connecting the circle and rectangle. This piece of paracord should fit on your hand like a glove (literally). See pictures above if you are confused. This is where I used my handy dandy Tacky Glue. After I glued, I added a layer of scotch tape for extra strength (optional).
Step 6: LIGHT
Now attach the a small piece of LED strip to the front of the circle. You need to cut the LED strips at the right spot. There are many helpful videos online on how to cut Single Color LED strips. Don't let the Strips hang off of the edge of the circle. The next step might get tricky.
Step 7: Soldering
Now its time to sauder. Look at the picture with the diagram and sauder all the pieces together. It is just a very basic on/off circut. You will need a 9v battery snap to connect the battery to the circut. If you need help then feel free to ask in the comments.
Step 8: Your Done!
One last thing..... Velcro the 9v Battery Snap to the back of the small rectangle in the back. Slide it on to your hand and go find Ultron. Or, use it to see in the dark if you need a flashlight. Now you can give it some style and make it look Legend....wait for it......Dary!
