Have you heard of PLASMA Arc-Lighters?
These Lighters produce two PLASMA Arcs that are powerful enough to start a Campfire or light a cigarette.
While the lighters themselves are impressive, we modified them to do even cooler things!
When you turn them on, they work as expected and produce the Plasma arcs.
After 5 seconds (long enough to light a cigarette) the lighter will switch into the MUSIC mode and play a little tune, using no other output device but the PLASMA itself!
It is similar to a small tesla coil in your pocket that generates sounds.
Based on the idea of PodeCoets project from 2016 we developed our own firmware that is compatible with the currently available PCB revisions in those lighters.
THIS IS A DIY KIT!
You receive a Lighter, a preprogrammed PIC MCU and a 0604 Capacitor.
You need to OPEN the Lighter yourself.
You need to unsolder the existing MCU and capacitor yourself.
You need to solder the new capacitor in.
You need to solder the new MCU in.
We can not provide it presoldered due to liability issues.
If you think you can not do this yourself please contact us for details.
Warning: Never ever touch the plasma-arcs.
Dont put anything conductive in the arcs either (fE a piece of wire, a screwdriver or a piece of solder).
You will get shocked and you will regret it.
It hurts like hell. Trust me. I tried that out so you don't have to.
Assembly video for the DIY Edition.
To modify your arclighter you will need:
- a fine tipped soldering iron
- a small crosstip screwdriver
