So... we were having a conversation at
work about what your super power would be if you, a normal human, decided to try and fight crime like Phoenix Jones. I
had decided that I'd use my staff along with some home-made tech. First order of business would be gloves that could taze people. I got some laughs at that. So i decided to make a set that actually work.
**EDIT** Since posting this i have switched out the momentaries with SPST switches. Now i don't have to hold down a button to recharge. Plus, I am already working on plans for version 2. They will be more stable and less ghetto looking. Altoids tins are a gift from the Gods, but project boxes are better.
Several discarded disposable cameras (Thanks Walgreens!)
2 altoids tins
Dollar store dog collars
Some rubberized fishing gloves from Wal-Mart
2 single pole single throw momentary switches
Outlining the Altoids tin
Holes for the finger contacts to come through
Momentary switch to charge he capacitor
The whole setup nice and snug
Individual finger contact
Hand showing finger contacts
I think if i added bigger capacitors or a bank of them, i could get that "knock you unconcious" effect, but just disabling you with high voltage is enough for me now.
Some video of it in action:
