Adding a 2nd transformer to a disposable camera stun gun?

I was thinking about adding an additional transformer(or 2) from a separate disposable camera to an existing one modified as a stun gun.  I'm getting about 300 volts with a dead AA battery but i want much more so it can arc.  Do you think this will work?  Thanks in advance for your answers..

Question by jules15 8 years ago


What is the difference of a taser to a stun gun?

I think people would easily say the difference is that a taser shoot projectiles and shock them. I dont think that is it. I heard the difference is that a stun gun is a "pain complaince weapon" and that a taser is a "immobilizing weapon". Stun gun hurts and tasers make you immobilized. How does a taser achieve that? It shoots 2 projectiles and the body acts like a condutor trying to pass that current. If you use a stun gun the 2 electrodes are too close so the current need to pass only a small amount of your body. That is what I think, can anyone confirm that? I think that is why it only hurts. What if I took a stun gun and made the electodes to be very far apart?  Like take two wire and make a person hold in each hand a wire, then I would turn the stun gun on.  Would that work like a taser? So the current passes the whole body and not only a tiny spot. I hope it makes sense to someone. Thank you

Epilog and Pocket sized electronics challenges

Hi, I would like to submit an instructable to the Epilog and Pocket sized electronics challenges. It is a spark/electric arc generator, which has many uses such as using it as a spark gap radio transmitter, igniting flammable gasses or liquids (camping stoves), or using the high voltage to charge capacitors. The circuit is based on that of a DIY stun gun, so the project could be used as a stun gun. In the rules it says the project can't be 'potentially dangerous'. So would this project be disqualified from the challenges for being too dangerous? I would of course warn people not to use it as a stun gun in the instructable.   Thanks in advance :) Detective Inspector Me

Perhaps the robot could carry a stun gun to drive out raccons. It has to be able to navigate the "wild" underside of homes or buildings and be waterproof. It could have an articulated arm to mount the camera and poke holes to search for termites.

How can I make crazy-high voltages without a bulky setup?

I know that stunguns and tasers can produce hundreds of thousands of volts. I was wondering what kind of circuits I would use to achieve similar or, preferably, higher voltages (like, in the millions) using components like ignition coils, magnet wire, 555 timers and components bought at Radioshack. I want to produce as much voltage as I can with a tabletop setup without having to build or use big capacitors, a tesla coil, or electrostatic generator. The purpose would be to generate lots of faint corona discharge.

Burning Man 2007 Time Lapse

Check out this awesome time-lapse of Burning Man 2007! Video by peef from the Shipyard -- thanks to Star for the link.From peef's notes: The images were captured by a Canon G3 mounted in a weatherproof housing of my own design up on a 20 foot pole next to the Powertainer. There were 18,486 images shot at 2272x1704 which is almost 4 megapixels each. Some of the full-size stills are stunning! The camera was controlled by a custom Daemon I wrote using the Gphoto library, which ran on the Powertainer's Slackware linux system and the images were stored full-size on a hard drive. After the event, I ran another piece of code that downsampled the images to 640x480 then composed them at 30fps into a MPEG-4 video. My friend Tom Sepe added the Music and Titles for me and Voila!The Man burns ( prematurely! ) around 3:55, then is temporarily removed by crane for repairs. The actual burn happens around 8:00.

Toy company hired to arm US military

A gun that fires variable speed bullets and which can be set to kill, wound or just inflict a bruise is being built by a US toy manufacturer. The weapon is based on technology used to propel toy rockets.Lund and Company Invention, a toy design studio based near Chicago, makes toy rockets that are powered by burning hydrogen obtained by electrolysing water. Now the company is being funded by the US army to adapt the technology to fire bullets instead.Bruce Lund, the company's CEO, says the gun works by mixing a liquid or gaseous fuel with air in a combustion chamber behind the bullet. This determines the explosive capability of the propellant and consequently the velocity of the bullet as it leaves the gun. "Projectile velocity varies from non-lethal at 10 metres, to lethal at 100 metres or more, as desired," says Lund.The existing VWS design is a .50 calibre (12.7 mm) rifle weapon, but Lund says the technology can be scaled to any size, "handgun to Howitzer".Experts warn that fatal mistakes could be made in stressful situations, with angry soldiers turning the dial up on mobs, or forgetting to turn it up when confronted by a situation that requires a lethal response.Me, I think we're more likely to find all the secret Star Trek fans crawling out of the military woodwork, cries of set weapons to "stun", Number One echoing across the training grounds...As an aside, Lund are the people behind Tickle Me Elmo as well, which makes images of armies of armed Elmos marching towards a mob; Hee hee hee, this will tickle, hee hee hee!Article in New Scientist

Need help figuring out how to make LEDs come on when signal is sent to speaker

Hi everyone! I've finally decided to create something. But since i'm completely new at this i need some help I want to add some interior lights in my car, and i want them to be sound activated. Currently i have 4 cathodes connected to 2 sound modules wired into the cigarette lighter. The problems i have with that are if i change the volume on the stereo, i also have to adjust the sensitivity knob on both the sound modules and because one module is under the seat and one is behind the dashboard, they react completely differently. what i want to do is get rid of the cathodes and replace them with LEDs and i want to somehow get the set that will be under the dash to turn on when an audio signal is sent to the front speakers and the set that will be under the seats to turn on and off when a signal is sent to the amplifier for the subwoofer. The key thing on this project is that i don't want to have to adjust something every time i change the volume and i want it to actually match the music, not every noise that can be heard in my car. Also i'd possibly want to replace the switch that turns on and off the entire system with a 3 way switch to have one side turn on the sound activation and the other to have the lights steady on so basically i would need to know what i would have to buy and how to put it together... Unfortunately my experience with electronics is limited to assembling a kit from adafruit to charge my ipod with 2 AA batteries and making a stun gun out of a disposable camera so i'm hoping for a simple way to do this Any help, ideas, suggestions, anything like that would be greatly appreciated
