Picture-based description of my cheap repulsor, based on some of the wisdom learned from JFcustom's $2 arc reactor: http://www.therpf.com/f24/inexpensiv...on-man-147915/ THANKS!
Bottom is the LED light, top is the (semi) finished product:
Bottom, the underside of the light. Top: I Dremel-ed off the edges of the round light to make a triangular battery back. I dismantled the rest of the light and set it aside (with some pieces I will use in a sec). I call attention to the little green circuit board in the center, attached by wires. This board houses the LED and switch.
This pic shows my foam cover for the battery case, and the LED/Switch resting on another foam piece, Dremel-ed out in the center to provide some space:
Now I place another 3mm foam piece in as a "spacer"
This shows the spacer on, and the "reflector" and other assembly parts fitting overtop the LED:
I am just using a simple paper to diffuse the LED light, but I will likely use vellum and maybe tint it blue in the future:
I am a noob, but I know that this is not a practical set up. the problem is that the wires are too short:
The repulsor will fit into the palm, have some flexibility, and the best part: turn on and off requires just a squeeze, kinda like Spiderman webshooters...
