If you have seen the Iron Man movie the image above is sure to be familiar to you. Patrick from Germany shared this project with us in the Hacked Gadgets forum, we have seen other cool Iron Man Repulsor Light projects before but as far as I know this is the first that it truly very dangerous. So a word of warning, do not attempt to copy this build unless you know what you are doing! Patrick already has plans for version 2 in his head, I look forward to seeing that in the future.

“The goal was to create a hand-held laser…powerful…balloons pop across the room…cuts plastic…
Made SOME laser-guns before, and the most “useless” space-eating part, was the grip. So I had to get rid of it. I am am a HUGE fan of the new Iron Man movies, so I decided to try my own design and make a glove. Took a whole weekend to make it, and another 2 days for the paint-job (made EVERYTHING myself…from metal-work, wiring, paint-job!)

Technical info:

– made of 2mm brass-sheet
– constant current LM317 driver
– 445nm 1000mW laser diode
– 2x 3.7V Li Ion cells (=7.4V total)”
