How to Make Iron Man’s Glowing Arc Reactor

Becky Stern of Adafruit has created a homemade version of Iron Man’s glowing arc reactor that comes complete with a “cool pulsing effect.” You can view Becky’s step-by-step instructions at Adafruit.

Planning an epic Iron Man costume for Halloween or Comic Con, or looking for that iconic piece that turns a plain t-shirt into Tony Stark? This is a simple soldering + crafts project. You can even customize it once complete, go for red, purple, green, pink: Whatever color will power you up! Or change the pulse rate or effects to add a special touch.
