Light Up Dragon Ball Ki Blast Prop

Ki blasts, or spirit blasts, show up in the Dragon Ball universe — especially the Kamehameha. Characters discharge these blasts, and they look like glowing balls of light. Redditor Kyengen is working on creating a prop version of one, and it would be an excellent accessory for a Goku or other Dragon Ball costume. This is only a prototype, but it already looks impressive. He explained how he made the LED enhanced blast:

The basic shape was made by just heating and twisting petg sheets until it reached a form I kind of wanted. The front part was made by draping the heated plastic over a snow globe, the rest was done by hand and cursing as I was grabbing heated plastic and I’m dumb. The stick is an acrylic rod attached with a dab of hot glue then heated to bend into a shape that follows the hand a little. The end of the rod was cut to be slightly flat with a dremel, so it could fit into the 3d printed wrist holder without moving around too much. The wrist holder in this image is too small, but you can’t really see that, I need to tweak it some for better stability. One little bonus trick I used is that the plastic sheet was coated with a light layer of mirror reflective paint. It gives it a grayish sheen without the light, but creates an internal reflective effect to give it a greater “glow” effect rather than just be lit up.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
