No, armor can never be made strong enough for paintballing. Someone put up a vid a while back demonstrating shooting paintalls at suit. The paintball punch holes straight through.
8x 9v batteries in series is equivalent to a 71V battery, 65 3.5V LEDs in parallel would require 3.5V to power... So your battery is producing 67V more than you need it to... Bad design.Hey guys wondered if any one can help me out. I have just wired up the LEDs in my gravity hammer. I will be putting in 8 X 9v batteries in series to power it but I am aware that the return voltage will fry the last battery. I have 75 ultabright 3.5v LEDs all in parallel. Do I need to pop a resister in or something of that nature to stop the batteries cooking?
Easy enough, just fill in the numbers, wire like the picture. From the product page, I entered 6V (4AA) as the source, 3.7 and 1000 as the forward numbers. Needs a 2.7Watt or greater resistor of approx 2.7 ohms.Also, how would one soder these LEDs into an electrical circuit?
I have seen it done by someone making a Hulk Buster Iron Man suit. So, I know it can be done. The only problem with that, is the visual blurriness. The only way you can counter this problem is by having a very high resolution LCD screen. This way your eyes can "process the information" so to speak, without getting cross-eyed. What they Iron Man suit builder did, was he stood about 10 feet tall so he put the camera in his chest (allowing him to see about normal height and by using a high resolution LCD (from a hand held camera) he was able to see quite well.)Has anyone ever tried/succeeded in using an integrated helmet cam into their armor?
We got some GoPro HD Hero cams at work, and after some thinking... the 'Operator' helmet in Reach already has the 'sensor' thingy on the forehead. Seems like there would be two decent ways to do it:
A. Mount the GoPro inside the sensor package and run a RCA cable into a small LCD mounted inside the visor. Probably should include some extra battery power... Easy to wire up, but not very easy to control the camera :-/
B. Mount the GoPro inside the sensor package with an extra battery and the Wi-Fi BacPac. This would allow you to control it remotely, and view the video from a smartphone. ...hmm... maybe it is time to get a smartphone? You could mount it in the forearm and control it there. Also, this would allow the sensor package to be easily removed to swap batteries or cards, or even mount it on another helmet? Or if you really wanted to, just hand it off to someone else to record something you're doing.
