Re: My BTTF Inspired Bag
:thumbsup Thanks guysCan't wait.. It's great seeing a fellow Aussie on here, especially one that makes props.. :love
Not at this stage. I have been thinking about doing a run of these. It is just a matter of sorting out the details.Are these available to order? I am interested if they are.
I have no idea of cost of materials at this stage. If I do a run, they will not be covered in carbon fiber like mine, so there is a $50 saving right up :thumbsupIf a run goes ahead, I would be in for sure
Just as an estimate, if a run is done, what price do you think you would be asking for?
Thanks Marty I hope the next version is even better and lighter. PVC is heavy and given this bag does not have a shoulder strap makes it a bit of a bore to carry around.Yours looks awesome, hope mine comes out have as good as yours. I have a pvc tube that is about 10.5-11 inches in diameter that was given to me for free at at construction yard. Had about five feet worth, enough for a base for my slime blower and for a Nike Bag. Will hopefully start that project sometime soon.
Thank you. I'll have to look up that tint. The tint almost needs to be like EL sheet that can be cut into any shape so long as you leave the terminals intact.Hey mate,
wish I'd known about this forum when I was in Brisbane too. I believe the end "windows" are derived from or used a technology called Electrochromic Tinting for BTTF II, hence why you see Emmett "Doc" Brown turn a dial to adjust the flow of electricity passing through the tint [or the glass] allowing it to go clear as the particles line up.
["In electrochromic windows, the electrochromic material changes its opacity: it changes between a colored, translucent state (usually blue) and a transparent state" -Wikipedia]
If you research a bit on it, you'll find there are some people selling the tint on ebay. I believe this would be the most practical way of applying it to this project, which I've spent many a night wide awake thinking of how hard/easy it would be to bring the Nike case and all it's real world functions to life.
You're bag looks the goods!
this video shows the effect pretty good Electrochromic Car Window Film - YouTubeAwesome , really great job ! I def want a Vac Formed version.
the tinting effect glass is indeed just a film like a EL sheet and you can cut it easily ! It's called Electrochromic film !
It's available cheap from Hong Kong,
