Step 1: All That You Need ..

You would require the following things
- 8 white leds
- 3 Button cells
-white cardboard
-semi transparent plastic sheet
-cellotapes,scissors etc.

Step 2: Getting Started

For making the body of reactor cut out a circle from cardboard and plastic sheet.
I have taken diameter for cardboard base 8.5 cm and plastic sheet with diameter 6.5 cm.
Encircle it and make boundaries or make a structure of can.
Connect the leds parallel in a circle I have taken 8 leds more than that cas also be taken. I found it redymade from a lamp but yes it can be easily made as shown in figures.
Draw the patter on a white paper using black sketch. Black color would give more natural effect to lights. Pattern can be drawn from the Internet, I have taken of my own.
Make battery by connecting 3 Button cells in series.

Step 3: Core of Reactor

Put pattern below the plastic sheet and encircled led on it. The semi transparent sheet will provide a beter refraction of light. Connect the batteries an let one end of ckt be opened .
cover the reactir with the cardboard base and take out the open wires from the base.

Step 4: Lights Off....

Put it below your T shirt . set the wires of reactor such that when you breath heavily connections closes due to pressure and led glows.

Enjoy killing people with uni beam ......
