Color-changing Cyber Visors!


#1

Made on a Glowforge using 1/8" green edged acrylic on Medium Clear Acrylic proofgrade settings. Most of the etching done as Draft Graphics, but with certain areas as SD graphic for accent.


#2

Oh now this I like. Got any details about the electronics or your end goal?


#3

Very cool!


#4

Neat! :sunglasses:


#5

Very nice! :clap:t2::clap:t2::clap:t2::sunglasses:

Super Coolio!!! Must not let my son see this he’s going to want some LOL


#7

WANT!!!

(additional superfluous text so Discourse will let me post my completely descriptive single-word sentence)


#8

Wow. I need to make something like this for my son. He’ll probably never take them off. Great work.


#9

Heat gun or oven for curving the visor? It is just spectacular. :sunglasses:

So clever. HUD visors would bring to life so many science fiction stories. Where to start!


#10

Very nice. Was thinking of something similar for a ghost in the shell cosplay. Would like to hear more of your process on this…


#11

Halloween costume ideas…this year is going too fast.


#12

Oh wow! What a cool build—sprouting lots of ideas.


#13

Those are awesome! Ive made similar for lucio from overwatch. Ive found that there is a slap bracelet on amazon that includes all in one side emitting LEDs with battery and button built into a small module. They work really well for things like this:

you can see how small the piece is here, just the size of a battery: (the plastic strip can come off)

Thanks for sharing this, including the link to the bracelets on Amazon. I love the effect of light going through acrylic. I haven’t tried making anything from acrylic yet, but I bookmarked your post so I can refer to it when I’m ready.


#15

Looks like a must for every child or young at heart.

These are awesome, how did you bend the acrylic and what did you use for the lighting? Also Do you have a photo of the side of them where they go behind the ears?


#18

Did you remove the plastic strip that is actually attached to the battery and just connect it to the glasses? I ordered and received the slap bracelets and removed them from the nylon colored sleeve, now I’m just trying to figure out what to do next.


#19

We used an electric kiln which allowed us to be super precise with the temperature and a timer, so I could get a perfect consistency for an initial bend, plus used a heat gun for immediate adjustments. I’ve made over a dozen of these so far. We trial-and-errored the prototypes but I’ve definitely gotten a feel foe heat-bending now.


#20

We ended up adding two lights. Each programmable light has 16 different settings and 20 different colors, the that can be run one at a time or both at once for trippy combinations:
