The prop works so far but the wiring has gotten a bit out of control I think. I never realized that hooking up 11 switches, 9 LEDS, 5 motors and a buzzer and some batteries would turn into such a rat's nest if you want certain things to only work when certain other things are happening.



I am actually dreading soldering the last connections ... some of which involve something like 12 wires together. I sense disaster looming.

If not a botch, it will be a fake ECT machine for a larp we are running next spring. This was my first test to see if everything fit in the housing. I still need to solder the connections and create the helmet portion ... in which a few pager motors will be embedded so the players feel something when their PC is "shocked". You see them to the left at the end of this video:

That is so clever.  I really hope you can get it all together the way you want it.
