I just got home from work, had a shower, came on wtf.com, looked at that, and am now going to the shops to buy a disposable camera. I'll let you know how it works out ;)

Stupid shops where i'm at dont have any. Going to go catch the bus to the huge mall and buy one.

And i seen and heard about this agesssss ago, but i couldnt understand what the instructions meant considering the diagrams were the most chat pieces of shit i've ever seen.

:thumbsup: you can also make one (a mini one) out of the piezo-electric element from a BBQ grill, or a lighter. Not quite as potent, but barrels of fun in a crowd.

Pretty cool, but he basically could have said "take batteries out and disassemble, cut the the flash off, and reassemble w/ the batteries in" and could have saved us the "instructional video".

Completed.

Thank you twist for the video. I have finished making it and yes it works very well. I used a kodak disposable flash camera.

I never realised taking it apart and fucking with it was that hard. Unlike in that video, this camera didn't have wires connected to the flash, but the flash was soldered to small bits of metal on the PCB. I shit you not, i got zapped at least 5 times making it. The first two times was the worst, i musta touched the soldered points to the capacitor or some shit. I had to borrow a mates soldering iron to solder some wires onto the board (which is another time when i got zapped).

Heres a pic of my finished product.





And if this link works, heres a VIDEO of it in action against my pair of scissors.

Have a nice day.

I now have the idea to replace the small capacitor in the camera you can see in the picture below, with the one on the right, or something bigger.

I also want to get strong metal prongs instead of the loose wires, and replace the short lived, cheap, stock, alkaline battery with a duracell AA.



If you cant see it above, try the LINK.

Oh, and i just tested it on a mate ;) It didn't spark much but it cramped his entire arm up, and made a small bleeding cut. I can't wait to see what happens with a larger capacitor :D
