Using the Internet Button as Iron Man's Repulsor and Arc Reactor

Last week, the Avengers: Age of Ultron premiered in the US. We were pretty excited about it, so we decided to honor our favorite heroic maker, Tony Stark.

In honor of Iron Man and his Avengers buddies, we built the Repulsor and Arc Reactor - or as we like to call it, the Spark Reactor.

Want to build one of your own? We’ll break down how to build and program the Repulsor, the servo, and the Spark Reactor. With the help of our newest team member James I used the Internet Button, Publish/Subscribe and servos to create this epic project. Blog post here!

Thor’s Hammer next?

Find and upvote on Hacker News if you want my eternal adoration! But I will still never be as cool as Tony Stark.

He built his arc reactor in a cave.


I love the repulsor. That’s such a cool effect using the accelerometer!
