Equus Horse Heads

October 8th, 2009 1 comment

Several weeks ago Hive13 volunteered to help out a local theater company known as New Edgecliff Theatre.  They were preparing for the Equus play.  They built several horse heads.  A 3-dimensional and 5 2-dimensional ones.  Our task was to make it so the horse head eyes would glow red via a switch.  Fairly simple except we had approximately 24 hours to do it and radio shack only had a few coin battery holders.  We also needed to make our own defuzers for the eyes.  We made the 3D defuzer with extra vending bubbles and we used a $4 air filter for the rest.  Once we ran out of battery coin holders we hacked a paperclip version which worked great :D
