This Tony Stark gave his heart away to a girl, and she said yes! “She calls me Tony Stark for all of the projects I have going,” says Eddie Zarrick. “So how great would it be if my “Arc Reactor Heart” could give her the ring?” The idea came to Eddie after previously creating a simple Arc Reactor prop replica which he proudly displays on his desk. The perfect proposal for a girl who loves Iron Man and comics.
Eddie redesigned his arc reactor, made it smaller and added more details. “My idea was to use two servos controlled by an arduino,” explains Eddie,”at first I was not sure how to light it up, but I had some of AdaFruit’s RGB LED Strip laying around from a pinball project. So I cut off enough to go around the reactor and used the arduino to control that as well! Also added a couple of bright white LEDs to hit the ring once it comes out.”
