CRX TESSERACT

CRX TESSERACT

I made this for my Mums birthday present over the last few weeks. Her birthday is in a few days.
She likes glowy things & Sci Fi movies Smile
Everything is hand made as usual using small hand saws & files.
The Cube has a built in charging circuit with a LiPo cell.
Two switches on the inside base control four blue 465nm downlights filtered through a GITD mix and the Tesseract central UV LED array, which is made from two opposing 8mm UV LEDs surrounded by four 465nm blue LEDs.

These switches can be set so they activate when the case is slid open & closed.

The Tesseract is both supplied and held in place by magnetic contacts and is removable from the vibranium case Wink
The case opens & closes via four telescopic uru sliding mechanisms.
Still got some tidying up to do but it is mostly finished.

CRX TESSERACTMy camera hates blue so it was difficult to get good pictures of the glowing space stone.

I'll try to get some night time shots later.CRX TESSERACT

She loves it!  Wink Thumbs Up 

Tesseract Gift

.

Original Concept:
I made up some scaled images to get a feel for the sizes etc before I started working on this.
You can see roughly how it was made, sorry no build pictures.
The Tesseract cube itself contains two opposing 8mm UV LEDs and four blue LEDs with another four blue LEDs in the case.

Wow, it’s wierd how you take a picture of a 4D object and it shows up as a 3D cube in the photos!

Now all you have to do is put some shiny spikes on it, make it levitate and give it locomotion and you might get a role in Phantasm XIV.

Wow...that’s amazing! Shocked

You don’t plan to build a second one, do you? Wink

Can this tesseract also pull people in and they end up in a book shelf? Big Smile

Another work of art, as usual. Hmm, vibranium. I might have thought you would use unobtainium.

Please illuminate responsibly

You have to make it touch sensitive and jam some motors inside so it would open when you touch it Cool

Well technically what he built is a copy of a movie prop however a tesseract is a real thing, it’s the 4 dimensional version of a cube. If you have a VR device you can download an app that allows you to interact with one in augmented 3D space.

CRX is so skilled, I bet he can make a flashlight with micro USB charger from a left over burrito.

CRX is just kidding us with his drawings.

That blue cube in the center doesn’t actually contain LEDs.

… It is clearly a solid cube of Kryptonite! Cool

No, there will only be one of these with the containment cube made by me.
I liked Interstellar too Smile

I thought of that but I would have had to make it bigger plus the added complexity would be stretching my skills to the limit. I wanted to make this with love, not cursing it! LOL
But yeah, that would have been super cool.

The cube LEDs are UV.

I didn’t take any build pictures, it could not be bought unfortunately as it is a unique gift.

Wow! CRX, you have done some amazing projects. But this is the best glowy thing I’ve ever seen you made. I’m glad your mom likes it! Congratulations!

Thanks Thumbs Up
I tried to tell her it was just the metal cube with the four blue lights showing on the sides when she opened the wrapping but she knew better and continued trying to open the casing until she figured it out Big Smile
