Get yourself the Iron Man Repulse Blaster that bleeps!

July 29th, 2010        

Fancy Iron Man yet your new hand-blaster from Toys’R’Us is letting you down? When it comes to cosplaying, some fans are downright serious about it, and sometimes go all-out in their costumes and gadgets. Whether it is crafting a life-size Buster sword or a Transformers costume that can actually transform, countless sweaty and smelly hours will be poured into these props. If that’s the sort of thing you enjoy, then you might want to check out this awesome repulse beam blaster. Sadly, the name’s the only cool thing, because you can’t really destroy your house wall with this. What a relief for mums.

The arm-mounted contraption is constructed from a xenon bulb coupled with the flash capacitor and charge circuit from a disposable camera. Of course some other necessary parts are there to get them all to work together nicely. The ring itself has a constant glow from a set of LED bulbs, but the real power comes from the xenon one. A press of a button starts it charging, then you need only touch one of your fingers to a trigger on the ring. It may not physically harm your foe, but it will very likely blind them.
