The Iron Man movie was awesome and we’ve all seen the crazy fanboys dressing up in cosplay costumes. The next take on the DIY arc reactor is very Robert Downey Jr and we think that’s a good thing (these days). Remember the terrible chest piece Tony Stark had to create to keep him self alive? Making your own isn’t too tough either; you just need to stand close to some explosive projectile.
Once it pierces your chest, the hard part is over. Gathering materials and soldering will be the least of your worries. Unfortunately, you can’t shoot impulse blasts from your chest with this arc reactor but at least you won’t have to settle for shitty life support.
